What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Dear Daniel,
Thank you very much for your prompt and documented answer. Thanks to Karl too!!
I did not suppose it was a moth!!
During this same travel, I saw another moth and first I thought it was a butterfly…. Further, I identified it as Urania fulgens. Is it true? It is also a marvellous moth….
It was in Corcovado in Costa Rica, in early March 2010.
Best regards,

Sunset Moth

Dear MAB,
Thanks so much for sending us your gorgeous photos of the Sunset Moth, Urania fulgens, a diurnal species occasionally reported from south Texas.  The North American Butterfly Association website has some nice photos.
