Dear Bugman,
Could you try to identify this moth so I can try to find better image of it?
This is in Jinotega, Nicaragua, during the rainy season in the last week of July 2010.

Dear SRW,
The photo you submitted does not provide much detail in the moth, but we decided to attempt an identification.  We first found a moth that looks like a good match on the Evolutionary Biology webpage, but it is not identified and the caption reads “Nightlife at Lake Apoyo.”  You need to scroll down the page a bit to see the image.  We continued to search and we believe this image of
Arsenura armida on FlickRis a good match.   Over the years we have posted several aggregations of Central American caterpillars that have been identified as the larvae of Arsenura armida.

Possibly Arsenura armida
