It is very likely that it is not lunus. There is a very similar species with minor differences - empedocles. And, it seems, they are not Nothus now, but Mania ...

Female moved.

Hey, still open question, if it belongs to Sematura genus or Nothus? http://www.guianensis.fr/photos_sematuridae.htm#Sematura lunus (hard to say). Grand dame it is, should be identified by the shot location.

Evgeny, new species needed (to add and approve).

Yes, the rest of it are also night ones.

The rest of it are also night (Heterocera)? Hard to identify. Hesperioidea and Papilionoidea are way easier to do! By the way, these two can be identified by the shot location.

Few more for a definite brain concussion ;--)

Was thinking, pondering.......
Hard cases: lots of South American species, night, undetermined. Brainstorm, no less.

Vasily, absolutely right, first run! No other suggestions!

29.01.2011 13:21, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Sematura lunus female, Linnaeus, 1758 (have no suggestions more).

29.01.2011 13:08, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Rather Apoprogoninae/Sematurinae/Sematura sp./ lunus Linnaeus, 1758?
