... and Fantastik Fotos! I love that glossy look when the colors don't change. See Jim Vargo's specimen at MPG

 
Thanks Bob,
Could you please help me with the guide pages. What subfamily and tribe does it belongs to?

 
two references
that I find very handy:

for moth classification, go to All-Leps and type the genus into the Search box (a taxonomic tree will appear)

for Hodges numbers, go to FUNET and type the genus into the Goto box (North American moths usually have the Hodges # written after the species name)

 
Thanks
Robin.

 
Oecophoridae, Oecophorinae, Oecophorini....
.... according to Hodges (1983) Check List.
