    Default Thailand Moths 2014

    Start the new year, still very poor of Lepidoptera, with a species from Krung Ching national park:


    Numenes sp., cfr. insignis (see http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-5/...gyiini_7_1.php)

    and one from Khao Sok national park:


    Unidentified Zygaenidae, medium/large size, IMHO mimic a Euploea

    No. 1 is Numenes siletti, which is the type species & continental form. Range NE India to Malaya.

    The Sundanian form, separated as N. insignis is restricted to Sumatra, Java & Borneo.

    No. 2 looks to be the male Amesia namouna.

    Three continental species of Amesia.

    A. namouna male & female.

    A. aliris.

    A. sangiflua. This is probably the female from Java. Correction: A female form of A. namouna from Java.

    Correct images of 3rd species Amesia sanguiflua (= blood-red flow).

    A typo error in Moths of Borneo have the name printed as A. sangiflua which resulted in no info/images when googling.

    Psilogramma increta.

    The ashy-grey form increta is now considered a distinct species from P. menephron. (Revisional note MoB 2011.)

    Yes, checking Moths of Thailand vol. 2 Sphingidae, it looks the same.

    Thank you Seow
