    Default Moths 2016-2017

    Just a casual miscellany of dubious insects from recent, and from all around Singapore island. More images will be added in time. As always, assistance is deeply appreciated.

    We'll start with some Crambids

    1) Lamprophaia alblactalis ?


    2) Neomusotima sp ?


    3) Musotima sp ?


    4) Glyphodes actornalis ?


    5) Dichocrocis tigrina ?


    6) Unknown

    Notodontidae and Limacodidae

    7) Netria viridiscens or N. multispinae ?


    8) Scopelodes sp ?


    And some Arctiidae maybe? My mind still doesn't register to the new revision..

    9) Amata sp ?


    10) Amata sp ?


    11) Unknown

    6.should be Omiodes diemenalis.
    http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.co...il/diemen.html

    7. Likely Netria viridiscens Female. Male is different.
    Schintlmeister revised the N. viridiscens complex into ten species.
    The images on the net becomes very confusing mixed up.

    In N. mutispinae the post medial (which forms the outer margin of the brown band) forms a sharp cornered indentation into the marginal green area in space 3.
    The antemedial (forming the inner margin) is less lobulated.

    In N. viridiscens the postmedial indentation is shallow ,often rounded & the antemedial is more lobulated with longer protrusions.

    8. No prper match.
    Addendum: Looks to be Scopelodes anthela ; basal half darker ,with vague barring in distal half.
    http://www.jpmoth.org/~dmoth/Digital...%20anthela.htm

    9 & 10 Amata stellaris. Body with white stripes ;wingtip white.
    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-6/...ominae-1-9.php

    11. Boradiopsis cf harmani. Zygaenidae, Chalcosiinae.
    The arrangment & shape of the spots closely match B. harmani than two others, B. aequalis & bipartita.
    Range Borneo. A single record from Singapore.

    Some Geometrids


    12) Acropteris rectinervata (?)


    13) Unknown


    14 & 15) Spaniocentra sp ?
    Perhaps S. megaspilaria, but there are so many similar-looking ones...



    This one has me completely stumped. I have never seen Spaniocentra like this before



    16 & 17) Borbacha spp




    18) Dindica olivacea ?

    More Geos..

    19) Agathia rubrilineata ?


    20) Agathia eromenoides ?


    21) Agathia laetata ?


    22 & 23) Ornithospila spp




    24 & 25) Pareumelea spp
    P. hortensiata is the closest I've gotten to these two on the net but something definitely seems quite off.




    26) Chrysocraspeda sp
    Potentially C. croceomarginata?

    Jerome, to be able to get the IDs of most of these is quite fantastic.
    I presume you also have access to many reference materials in the library.

    12.Acropteris rectinervata. Both pale medial bands on the FW & HW are broad. veins on FW straight.
    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-8/...niinae_2_2.php

    A. grammearia: Both pale medial bands narrow.
    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-8/...niinae_2_1.php

    A.leptaliata : FW pale band broad ;HW pale band narrow.
    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-8/...niinae_2_3.php

    14. Spaniocentra cf spicata.
    HW apex brown patch largely obsolete; FW inner margin of brown spot flat-top ,& curved outwards at the bottom.
    http://www.boldsystems.org/index.php...e?taxid=155692
    https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/F...180872187).jpg

    S. megaspilaria. FW spot large & inner margins curved at both ends. :HW apex brown patch slight.
    http://www.jpmoth.org/~dmoth/Digital...gaspilaria.htm
    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-9/...trini_25_1.php

    S. apatteloides. HW apex brown patch prominent.
    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-9/...trini_25_2.php
    http://www.jpmoth.org/~dmoth/Digital...atelloides.htm

    TL Seow: Cheers.
    PS. 15 is probably the same species as 14, though it looks closer to megaspilaria.
    If spicata is inknown in Singapore & megaspilaria is recorded, then 14 & 15 are likely to be megaspilaria.

    16 & 17 Borbacha pardaria. FW postmedial band is bent halfway down towards the dorsum(lower margin).

    1 to 5 are right.

    18 Dindica olivacea is right. FW postmedial( dark line) meet the costa at a sharper angle.
    https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/7277095
    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-9/...trini_12_3.php

    D. polyphaenaria. : FW postmedial meet costa at a less acute angle.

    19 female, 20- male. Agathis succedania.
    Note FW medial brown fascia reaches about midway on the lower margin.
    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-9/...trini_21_1.php

    in A. rubrilineata the fascia is more oblique & closer to the tornus.
    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-9/...trini_21_7.php


    21 .Agathis laetata.: FW lack the medial fascia.
    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-9/...trini_21_2.php

    TL Seow: Cheers.
