  1. Erebidae - Eulepidotis dominicata or E. electa Posted 18 days ago
    1. Wow, a contest between two beauties! A plate that shows the front of both species:

      Note the wider white "cut" on the forewing of dominicata compared to electa. Distribution also slightly leans towards dominicata but data is sparse.

      Thanks once again!

      1. Definitely, I agree. And, you're welcome! Posted 18 days ago
        1. And how about that link, huh? A proper german link it is. Posted 18 days ago
          1. Yes, hilarious! Why is it so long?? Posted 18 days ago
            1. Because its german. Posted 18 days ago
              1. Ja, genau! Posted 18 days ago
                1. Sorry, it's kind of a web developer inside joke. German words tend to break layouts because of their uninterrupted length :) Posted 18 days ago
                  1. Makes sense...German is actually my favorite language - of the ones I can speak at least. Posted 18 days ago
                    1. Welsh would be my least favorite. I only know a few words from when I lived in Wales, but the language makes me gag. Posted 18 days ago
                      1. That's rough lol. Can't say I ever heard Welsh. Posted 18 days ago
                        1. Whaaat?

                      2. Gotta reply here as we reached maximum comment depth. Wow, welsh is crazy. It's even worse than Scottish. I once had a Scottish friend at work, couldn't understand half of what he said for the first 3 months. Posted 18 days ago
                        1. Yes! I agree about Scottish too. Norwegian is also super hard. I had a professor from Norway and I had no idea what he was saying 90% of the time. Posted 18 days ago
  2. Wow! What a pretty individual! Posted 18 days ago
    1. Thanks, with tail lights :) Posted 18 days ago
