    1. Looks correct, although not a distribution match, Dicymolomia opuntialis has a similar "shine" to it. Posted 6 days ago
      1. Yep, and the same kind of wrinkly, oversized wings. Posted 6 days ago

    1. Thank you, number wise I'm happy given the season. We did have to scramble together this result. Posted 6 days ago
      1. Definitely! How many people have taken photos of moths in Madagascar during the dry season AND have shared them online. Not many, I'm guessing! Every species is valuable to add to the sparse record! Posted 6 days ago
