Here is a link, courtesy of Claudio Flamigni, whose identity I will not display unless he wants me to. This link contains a study devoted to the neotropical Geometrinae, and through it you will see how complicated these green moths are and how most of the identifications in Google - usually summarized by Nemoria, Oospila or Synchlora - on Brazilian specimens, have a high probability of being wrong:<br />
