Hey bugman, just reporting sightings of Black Witch Moth here in Hawai’i.
Is this a male or female?

Dear Hawai’i Kane,
This Black Witch is a male of the species, and to the best of our knowledge, they are not called Black Warlocks.  Female Black Witches have bands on the wings.

Location: Honolulu, Hawaii

    It’s a male. The females have a white median strip.

  2. Some years ago had one here in Arizona. Will post a picture I have if needed.
