Wasp moth or wasp moth mimic
This photo was taken by Jim Spencer in Shark Valley, Everglades National Park. Is it a wasp moth or wasp moth mimic? Hope you can help. Thanks,
Linda Evans

Hi Linda,
This is a Wasp Moth in the Tribe Euchromiini, but we have not had luck identifying the species. We are going to check with our neighbor Julian who is an expert in this group of moths. We called Julian and he gave us a common and scientific name: Double Tufted Wasp Moth, Didasys belae.
