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.
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.
