  1. My first guesses would be Patalene sp. or something in Family Geometridae>Subfamily Ennominae. Posted 8 months ago
  2. Herbita medona could be a close match as well. Posted 8 months ago
    1. Could also be a Saturniid moth. Lonomia sp. is similar. Posted 8 months ago
      1. That actually looks much better! I agree with Lonomia Posted 8 months ago
      2. Looks like the male Lonomia electra (on the left) here:

        These were in Costa Rica.

        1. Also similar to this one: https://www.flickr.com/photos/andreaskay/32342590688/ Posted 8 months ago
          1. This is very tricky. Surely your reference looks closer in color, but that observation seems unsure. Looking at other observations of colombiana, it looks really quite the same (to me) as electra.

            I don't feel qualified to pick :)

            1. I agree. He wasn't confident of the species ID, which is too bad since it is so similar to your moth. Posted 8 months ago
