New Photos…
Hey there Bugman,
Here is a photo of a wasp-moth my boyfriend took a while ago, or atleast i believe it is a wasp-moth. he has other insect related photos in his photostream if you would like to see. Thanks
All of the photos in the stream where taken in Puerto Rico, the wasp-moth more specifically was taken in the southern part of Puerto Rico.

Hi Jeighmee,
We will contact lepidopterist Julian Donahue to see if he can correctly identify your moth.

Appears to be Horama pretus. Dorsal view at: http://www.inra.fr/internet/Produits/PAPILLON/arctiid/texteng/h_pretus.htm The related species, Horama panthalon texana, occurs in the U.S.
