  1. Silkworm moth (Family Bombycidae) Posted 5 months ago
    1. Yes, thanks! Similar (but not same) species:

      1. Definitely! Sorry, I don't know the genus or species. I'm not familiar with these moths, and can only recognize them due to their unique posture.

        Btw, I love this shot!

        1. Hmm. I still can't find a match. Maybe it's a scoopwing moth, like Phazaca sp.?? they also posture like this. Posted 5 months ago
          1. Thanks! I believe I have a photo of this one on the cloth, it may make it more clear. Will post that later (not today). The genus you suggest definitely seems to match in body shape. Posted 5 months ago
          2. Scoopwings (Subfamily Epipleminae) were my first thoughts as well, but I'm not sure! Posted 5 months ago, modified 5 months ago
          3. Also agree that Apatelodidae family looks close :/ Posted 5 months ago, modified 5 months ago
