Hi Paul!

This is a Trichromia gaudialis (Erebidae: Arctiinae).

Cheers, Auke :-)

Hi Steve,

The first one is a male Eacles adoxa.
The second one is a Citheronia hamifera hamifera.
The third one is a Rothschildia, either R. aurota aurota or R. hesperus hesperus.

Cheers, Auke :-)

Thanks, Auke! In the mean time I had already changed it myself to Nymphidium baeotia W.C. Hewitson 1853.

I will look into it later.
Smiles,
Klaas

I guess that ID could well be right. Even though the photo is not focused, the whiteness and posture of the specimen are quite distinctive. The species is also mentioned in "Butterflies of Suriname: a natural history."

Cheers, Auke :-)

According to what I find, Nymphidium mantus should have much more blue. Based on my literature, your specimen is likely a female of N. aurum.

Cheers, Auke :-)

It may actually be a moth; it appears that the antennae are feathered. Not sure though, it might just be an artifact of the photo being out-of-focus.

Cheers, Auke
