Hi there,
Was wondering if you might be able to help me identify this moth? Many Thanks if you can help. All the best,
Marc

Hi Marc,
We are not even going to attempt to search for an exact species on your mating Wasp Mimic Sesiid Moths unless we know where this photo was taken. We are guessing somewhere in the Caribbean since we have heard a local name for paper wasps is Jack Spaniard.

Hi there,
This was taken in the British Virgin Islands. I live near Sage Mountain on Tortola, British Virgin Islands and I have seen these around fairly often. We also get a lot of Sphinx moths and Tiger Moths (which get to about 5 inches). They are all very cool. Cheers,
Marc
