Moths - Nachtvlinders - Papillons de nuit / Re: Hylesia sp., Suriname

Yes, these are all Hylesia. There are quite a bunch of species to be found in Suriname, most of which are quite similar in appearance. I'm unaware of any good overview to separate them, except possibly the website www.entomofauna-guynae.fr.

Cheers,

Interesting! I found two quite similar moths on Brownsberg, February '18, and I named them Automeris spec., but of course I am open to better insight!

Kind regards,

I was told by Sven Bontenbal that this should be Pareuptychia lydia, recognizable by the broadening of the white band on the underwing.

I understand that this was only described as 'most likely' to occur in Suriname in Hajo Gernaat's book on butterflies of Suriname. I guess this may be changed to 'sure' in the next edition.

I was told by Sven Bontenbal that this should be Cissia penelope, recognizable by the pattern on the wing margin.

Hi Dimitri,

Thank you. I was leaning towards Boana boan and am grateful for your confirmation.

Very small Scarabaeinae from southern Guyana, near the Rupununi River, May 2013.  Habitat was dense tropical forest.
