  1. Compare to Synclera sp. Maybe Synclera jarbusalis or Synclera chlorophasma? Posted 6 months ago
    1. Amazing! I tried for a long time to try and find a visual difference between the 2 without luck. However, when it comes to distribution, both aren't really reported for Colombia in great numbers yet Synclera jarbusalis is clearly the one between those two consistently reported just outside Colombia, in Central America. Therefore my theory is that Synclera jarbusalis is more likely.

      1. Oh, and I definitely agree with S. jarbusalis as well. Posted 6 months ago
    2. Great job on the IDing, Christine! Be sure to take it easy on yourself! *points finger*

      *feels silly for being a little sad there is nothing left to ID* LOL :P

      Ferdy, this one is a beauty!

      1. No need to feel silly for being excited, Lisa, and I'm of course very excited about the amazing help I'm getting from both of you. I'll be uploading some more tonight so don't worry about nothing to ID. There's also the existing list with some unidentified ones, but I believe most are already identified as far as was possible. And further down the set there's 3 more mothing nights ;) Posted 6 months ago
      2. Thanks! I always "rest"...sort of.

        And, I'm so sorry for hogging the IDs! I will resist next time and will be sure to leave some for your identifying delight <3
