    Default One windy, foggy night at Khao Ramrome

    Khao Ramrome, 990 mt, South Thailand.

    20/30 knots of wind, a pleasant 15 to 20 C. a lot of fog. Not easy to set up a MV ligh. Shame because, although a last less than 2 hours, it was very busy, moths speaking.

    Hard to take sharp pictures with the white sheet flying like a sail...

    Amerila astreus
    - Arctiidae, Arctiinae

    Euhampsonia roepkei (Notodontidae, Dudusinae),
    or, as the friend Les Day write: "is similar to the northern E. serratifera. In MOT, vol.5 (page 44) it states that E. roepkei is the Sudanian sister species and MAY be found in S. Thaland"

    Phyllodes staudingeri
    - Phyllodes staudingeri

    Eudocima phalonia
    - Erebidae, Catocalinae

    Zeuzera indica
    - Cossidae. Or, as the friend Roger Kenrick write:
    "indica and coffeae are now in the genus Polyphagozerra courtesy of the following publication:
    Yakovlev, R.V., 2011: Catalogue of the Family Cossidae of the Old World. Neue Entomologische Nachrichten, 66: 1-129."
