    Default Samui Moths

    I do not get many moths around my patio lights at night, but I got back late one night and found these three. Can't find their IDs.

    #1 is a Eupterotidae
    #2 is Sarbanissa albifascia (Noctuidae, Agaristinae)
    #3 is a Notodontidae - there are several genera like this, e.g. Turnaca, Besaia. Ceira.... All are thought to be bamboo feeders.

    cheers, Roger.
