Sexy Clio Tiger Moth - Ectypia clio - male

Sexy Clio Tiger Moth - Ectypia clio - Male
Tonopah Desert, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA
April 13, 2015
Size: 22mm Body
These are close up images of a male Clio Tiger Moth, Ectypia clio. I made a video about this moth and then I noticed that the BugGuide needed more example images of males, with good views of the plumose antennae.
The dimorphism of this species is relatively simple to determine, if you can get good images of the head area. Here is a link to his video: ♂ Clio Tiger Moth - Ectypia clio - (3min duration)
