Maybe E. polita, but Eric knows what it is, so I'll get it from him. Sorry for the ghost shadows, this shot was taken through plastic.

Moved from Eucalantica.

Tentatively moving to species. Did Eric get back to you on this? If this move is in err, please move to where you see fit. I was just spending a little time cleaning out the back end of Moths.

Moved from Moths.

Yes, looks like Eucalantica polita 2350
Eric will know for sure. How did you end up shooting through plastic? Here is a DNA verified one.

Well, the specimen collection was more important than the image. We caught this moth flying through the forest, and after it was placed in the vial, I photographed it.
