Photo #6287: Rothschildia aurota

Imago

Rothschildia aurota

Base gallery. Upperside. Alive insect.

Photo: Konstantin Kraevsky. Image redone at the website. Identified by: Evgeny Komarov

Date and time, location shooting/catching: 2011-02-00 00:00:00, Guyana, the Cuyuni River basin, near Quartzstone stream, at the exploration camp area.

Photographer's comment: Moths with ragged wings are rather common to meet in Guyana. The Indian guard said that bats did that. Anyway, butterflies happen to have such too. That's forest... Caterpillars might creep too deep into a net of branches before having pupated.
