    Hi Antonio. I know I said that I thought I recognised this. I was wrong, it is not what I thought. I think it must be a Zygaenid (I have checked all Arctiinae references and it is not there), and therefore can not be identified by published works (there are none!). Regarding your earlier posts, I can not go better than you have already done.

    The second one is Hypopyra pudens (Catocalinae). A widespread species.

    The first one, however, is much more interesting. The genus was obvious immediately, A Nyctomera species (Arctiinae). The common species all have either a) the forewing white band is crossed by black veins or b) large basal white patches on the forewing, or both. Your photo has neither. The only species I am aware of where this is the case is Nyctomera ploessli (Cerny 2009), which, as far as I am aware, is only known from the Type specimen, a female, collected near a waterfall somewhere in the Khao Luang area in 2008, so you are in the area, sort of. I am not sure if the species is as rare as this suggests as misidentification in the wild for one of the more common species is quite possible.

    The forewing white band differs, less regular margins and lightly marked veins . Antonio's shot matches the type for N. ploessli perfectly.

    The Sumatran shot is typical N. baulus.

    Today I took care more about that moth, I've seen maybe 20 more. A few more pics too.

    Instead this is an old pic, but Roger C. Kendrick (HKmoths) gave me a better ID:


    Daphnis hypothous
