This one is done, surprisedly and happily.

Moved to "identified successfully".

08.02.2011 17:48, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Two genera added.

08.02.2011 17:24, Evgeny Komarov

Vasily! Set Aethria, and the second one as a synonym, one may search by both! Will correct, if needed!

08.02.2011 17:11, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Genus is questionable, sure. What genus should it belong to?

08.02.2011 17:09, Evgeny Komarov This species is identified correctly.

08.02.2011 13:23, Alexandr Zhakov

Species is ok, genera are questionable, don't know this "kilometre zero" as for tropics. Author is the same. We should choose a taxonomic system as default one.

08.02.2011 12:58, Vasiliy Feoktistov

This is also should be cleared: Opinions needed.

Dear moderators, please, add and approve this species and new other "Guyana" identified lately...

08.02.2011 1:07, Alexandr Zhakov

Beast done. :)

Can be, can be, looks like Aethria leucaspis flava:

08.02.2011 1:03, Dmitriy Pozhogin

Whoa! Agreed!

08.02.2011 1:01, Dmitriy Pozhogin

Rather Aethria leucaspis (Cramer, 1775). At least, genus is sure.

08.02.2011 0:53, Alexandr Zhakov

No, so close, but it's not, look at the venation. My suggestion is Aethria leucaspis (Cramer, 1775):

If I only knew where to find these books...

08.02.2011 0:48, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Nearly lost my vision, even in glasses, that sucks...

Who wants and is not lazy, can look through:

Think, this one is Arctiidae, Phoenicoprocta vacillans, Walker, 1856, or something close to (tough case):
