    I go with Lyssa zampa, also. Note though that the very similar L. monetius is also possible in southern Thailand.

    see the Moths of Borneo website for details:
    Lyssa menoetius - http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-8/...niinae_1_2.php
    Lyssa zampa - http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-8/...niinae_1_1.php

    cheers,

    Roger.

    Thank you, Roger. After reading the descriptions, it appears that my sdpecimen is a female of Lyssa zampa (the wider white/grey markings lead me to that impression).

    PS. I'm slowly getting links to the various volumes, Nos 1,3,5,6,8 & 12 so far!

    Good online resource, Roger. Thanks!

    I'll put this on a sticky by itself later.
