Taken Trinidad April 2013. Can you ID it?
If we are correct, Trinidad is an unreported sighting location for this lovely Hemiluecinid, Dirphia tarquinia. We learned that when we identified its ranging in Venezuela on the World’s Largest Saturniidae site, a private site on the internet. Here is a photo from Kirby Wolfe’s website. We have written to Bill Oehlke to verify our identification, and we would greatly appreciate it if you would grant him permission to post your photo to his site.
Yes, it is tarquinia. I have sent an email to Robin, confirming id and asking for permission to post image.
