    Hi Dr Seow,

    I raised another Erionota sp. on banana leaves, but from certain photos the termen looks straight, in others it looks a little convex. So I am a little conflicted if it is either E. thrax and E. torus. Would like to hear your opinion on this. Thank you!

    *Both are the same individual

    Female Erionota torus.

    It can often be difficult to judge from photos because of the angle of the shots.
    It is always good to have several views..
    Pic 2 obviously indicate E. torus.

    E. torus is probably more common in Singapore.
