  1. Nice one! Bertholdia albipuncta, or similar? Posted 5 months ago
    1. You're so quick! Looks exactly right, thanks. Posted 5 months ago
      1. You're welcome, it was an easy one! Posted 5 months ago
        1. Whoa, I'm only seeing this now as I zoomed into another photo of the same species...those light marks on their wings are not marks, they are the complete absence of any scales. We're looking at the cloth itself, see-through.

          Pretend that you didn't already see this.

          1. Huh, I didn't realize that at all. Very cool! I think the "white" areas look like dalmatians. Posted 5 months ago
            1. Wow, I found a detail you didn't see :) Posted 5 months ago
              1. Haha, busted! Posted 5 months ago
        2. Ah, found the common name which highlights this feature: Saffron-bodied Clear-tip. Posted 5 months ago
          1. I like the common name, or at least the saffron part. Posted 5 months ago
            1. B-b-but...the cleartip part is what matters here. Posted 5 months ago
              1. True, true, true...especially because the clear part looks like dalmatians. Please tell me you see the dog profiles. There is also an elephant with eyeshine below the thorax... Posted 5 months ago
                1. Ok, either you're messing with me or this is an epic hivemind moment. Did you or did you not see my FB post where I said the exact same thing? Posted 5 months ago
                  1. About the dalmatians or the elephant?! Posted 5 months ago
                    1. Oh, but no - I have not checked FB. Did you post this moth for ID on FB? Posted 5 months ago
                      1. I just checked FB and don't see a post about this moth. I did see that you tagged me in a Loxophlebia moth post though. The suspense is killing me, what is the joke? Posted 5 months ago
                        1. It was another post, I just mentioned you in it in a comment :) Posted 5 months ago
                2. Yes, it also has dalmatians. I can see them CLEARly. It was a great TIP of you to point that out. Posted 5 months ago, modified 5 months ago
                  1. Whoa, weird (the elephant comment, yes?)!

                    And, um, I am so relieved that you clearly understood my tip concerning the dalmatians.
                    Posted 5 months ago, modified 5 months ago
                    1. Yes, the elephant comment. I really thought you just copied it over, it was so alike. Clearly I was wrong, my correctness kind of tipped over into wrongness. Posted 5 months ago
                      1. Seriously weird! It would have been weirder if you had also mentioned the dalmatians as well though ;) Posted 5 months ago
                        1. Which dalmations? Posted 5 months ago
  2. OHHHHH, no. The dalmatians are perfectly CLEAR! Even more so than the demonic elephant holding a tissue... Posted 5 months ago
    1. Haha, now it's holding a tissue, that's a nice addition. That part of the wing is damaged, on my FB post I brushed it away, yet did not do so here :) Posted 5 months ago
      1. Hehe, thanks. The elephant is either holding a tissue or foaming at the trunk. Foaming at the trunk may make more sense though because of the glowing eyes. It must be a zombie elephant. Posted 5 months ago
        1. Yes, its totally drooling, like that time when you rattled your sack of bones whilst limping :) Posted 5 months ago
          1. Lololol! Except, I totally don't drool...Aside from sometimes when I'm sleeping. Posted 5 months ago
            1. This has become such a smart-ass thread of clever teases and border-line insults. All in good fun, of course :) Posted 5 months ago
              1. Truly. We excel in the art of smartassery. Posted 5 months ago
