Hello, I spotted this beautiful little bug on my Pink Guara yesterday.
What kind of bug might it be?
This pretty little diurnal Snout Moth is known as an Orange Spotted Flower Moth or Red-Waisted Florella Moth, Syngamia florella. According to BugGuide it: “Flies rapidly but short distance when disturbed, tends to settle on underside of foliage.”
