Yes, that's it, no doubts! Alive form is absolutely crazy, unbelievable. Adjacent genus added.

There are two species, but probably, one. Colax phocus (Schaus, 1892) has different ribbons.

First wanted to identify some white Limantriidae, undetermined, and checked out Notodontidae also: http://www.guianensis.fr/photos_notodontidae_1.htm.

So knackered... Sure, Notodontidae!

11.02.2011 21:58, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Sorry, Noctuidae.

11.02.2011 21:57, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Notodontidae, will add genus now. So Alexander, did you find it out? My brain is totally collapsed.
