Quite a beautiful moth.

Noctuidae, Arctiinae, Arctiini - Nyctemera adversata

this species is involved in a mimicry ring with Pieris spp. - it's flight pattern is so similar to that of P. canidia that I can't tell the two apart from a distance.

cheers, Roger.

I've seen it in Hanoi. At first I thought it was a butterfly, then I saw the antenna. Later it flew off just like a butt.
