  1. Awesome! It has some similarities to Drepanogynis sp., but I don't see a match. Posted 9 days ago
    1. lol searching for Drepanogynis brings me right back to this page, because you suggested it and Google has indexed that :)

      I'm thinking overall body shape could be a match with that, just trying to find a specific example that is close. I think this is the first explicitly attractive moth and was hoping for it to be easy. Nope, bloody hell MDG moths are HARD!

      1. I know it! I assumed this would be *easy* to ID. I'm feeling nearly clueless with these Madagascan moths. Posted 8 days ago
        1. I have the same feeling lol, identification rate of....say....1%? Posted 8 days ago
          1. Haha, exactly! It's 99% guess, 0.5% probable, and 0.5% confidence. Posted 8 days ago
