  1. Stunning!!

    Tricentra sp.? Maybe Tricentra vinosata or similar?

    1. Tricentrogyna vinacea and Lophosis labeculata are also similar. Posted 6 days ago
      1. Thanks! So tricky. When checking reference photos of all 3, I'm seeing wildly different appearances all attributed to the same ID. I wonder if those are misidentified or perhaps differences between male/female.

        Lophosis labeculata to me looks like the most promising candidate:

        1. I noticed that too and was wondering as well. I agree that L. Labeculata looks the closest. Posted 6 days ago
