Thanks in advance.

We tried without any success to identify your moth. We suspect is it in the family Erebidae and we hope we will eventually be able to provide you with a species name.

Hi Daniel and Ton:
It’s a Geometrid moth (Geometridae: Ennominae) in the genus Chiasmia. There are at least six similar species of Chiasmia in Sri Lanka and I wasn’t able to come up with a definitive species name. Regards. Karl.
Hi Daniel and Karl,
I would like to thank you for the identification so far. It is a great
help for us after our visit to that beautiful Sri Lanka.
Have happy days and a good 2013!
