Sorry, my moving error!
I moved a moth to The Gem earlier and must have had this one tagged so it went for the ride!

I suspected that
but I wasn't sure if you were challenging the ID and mis-moved, so I played it safe rather than putting it back, which might have seemed like an endorsement to the original ID and a challenge to your challenge. wew!

Thanks John!
I need to pay attention to what I have tagged!

I decide to go to sleep early guys, and look what happens???! 8;P
Just kidding, as it's something I'd have easily done myself!

please fix date
Hi, would you please fix the date on your photo so that it represents the day you took the picture (currently reads 1969)

8078 - Cisthene martini
Would love to have taller unsigned copy to head species page at MPG.

I'm getting much better with my guessing!!!

Moved from ID Request.

genus Cisthene?
This likely falls in genus Cisthene or somewhere close by.

I'm going with a guess
that you've got a photo of 8078 – Cisthene martini
