Much better!

Moved
Moved from Lycomorpha desertus.

Thank you for catching my error! All these need to be reviewed.

aren't these the same?
I'm not saying that the id on mine is correct - I've had my doubts. but they should probably be on the same page

Lycomorpha desertus
Moved from Butterflies and Moths.

Nice! Appears to be Lycomorpha desertus by the original description. I will do some further checking to be sure.

 
Are you sure this isn't the Z
Are you sure this isn't the Zygaenid Neoalbertia constans? The big feathery antennae immediately point to Zygaenidae for me.

L. desertus is a very cool species that I've never seen, nor has anyone else I've ever met.

 
Yes, exactly
that was my id, too - so I'm leaving mine at Neoalbertia and I am tempted to move the others

 
Lycomorpha desertus!
Hi Maury,

Thanks for your help. It looks like a first for BG! Thanks for putting up a guide page.
