    Default Clearwing?

    Unless I've got the Family wrong, I don't think the Moths of Borneo volume treating this species has been published yet. A very pretty moth, but which one.

    Zygaenidae

    Trypanophora sp.

    This family will be in the last vol. of MoB to appear, vol. 2, along with a revised checklist to all the families covered by J.D.Holloway's Moths of Borneo series.

    Technically, the burnet moths are microlepidoptera, though have usually been regarded as honorary macromoths.

    cheers, Roger.

    Thanks, Roger. That was the Family I thought. Well, they say patience is a virtue, so I will have to wait to see if I can get a specific name for it.
