Hylesia sp., Suriname
« on: Sat, 16 March 2019, 05:04:09 AM »
I believe this is a Hylesia sp.  Berg en Dal, Brokopondo, Suriname.  21 June 2014, came to lights in a forested area.

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,

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,
