Tallula baboquivarialis - Hodges #5593
Moved from Moths.

Nice addition to Bug Guide.
Possibly the first photo online!

How do we know this?
Since the photos at BOLD for T. baboquivarialis look nothing like this moth, how do we now that this is not T. beroella?

I'll check whether I've got a better one, they are quite three dimentional

This is indeed T. beroella
I just checked the collection at the USNM and saw the types. This is in fact T. beroella and not baboquirivarialis, as I suspected. The photos at BOLD present a good likeness for the latter species.
