    Default Moth TBID

    Something just to keep our moth experts busy.

    Roger/Fluirute, any idea what's the ID of this moth?

    it's range : mainland China, India, Indonesia,
    and Singapore,

    family : 夜蛾科,
    Chinese name is 象夜蛾

    Hi Cruiser,

    Fluorite has the right identification, though is missing some information.
    Holloway's Moths of Borneo series, in this case the combined parts 15 & 16 issued late last year (Malayan Nature Journal 58: 1-529) gives the distribution of Grammodes geometrica as "Mediterranean east to Oriental and Australasian tropics". I think it must occur in Taiwan as (if I recall correctly from my ailing memory) it is figured by H-Y Wang in his series of Illustrated Insects of Taiwan.
    It's not regularly seen in Hong Kong - just a few records, so could possibly be migratory.

    cheers,

    Roger.
