    Default Moth ID help please

    The abdomen of this moth is red in colour. Can anyone ID this moth?

    Looks like a recently hatched specimen. The wings are in pristine condition. Can't help you with the ID there, HB. Perhaps you can post a message to the webmaster of the Hong Kong Lepidopterists Society. There are more moth experts over there.

    Thanks a lot, fluorite!

    Glad to know that you're from Taiwan. Sometimes I travel to Taiwan. Perhaps next time I go there, you could give me some tips on nature watching in Taiwan.

    Cheers,

    in case of you are arrives in Taipei, you can take a one day trip to Tiger hill, or Elephant hill,

    you can post a message on Taiwan butterfly forum, request a local guide, I feel sure a lot of Taiwan pals response your request,
