Speckled Roller, Ivoloina park, Madagascar

  1. Some vague ideas for an ID based on this moth's shape:
    -Family Yponomeutidae
    -Family Elachistidae (unlikely bc of distribution)
    -Family Gelechiidae (doubt it)
    *Family Tortricidae >Subfamily Olethreutinae
    **Family Erebidae>Subf. Arctiinae >Tribe Lithosiini

    I favor the last 2 as the best possibilities, but haven't found any matches.

    1. Hah, I too noticed that this particular shape is spread across multiple families, making a search quite difficult. I'm going to browse some of those families, see if I can find something close. Thanks a lot! Posted 13 days ago, modified 12 days ago
      1. I'll try to dig a bit deeper too. There are probably other similar ones not listed above that I don't know of as well. Posted 12 days ago
