Hi! Do you know what moth is this? It is a black moth with some white (maybe not pure white) details, not bigger than 3cm, with red and yellow tiny “hairy” details. It was seen in Porto Alegre, Brazil during the morning. Thanks in advance! Picture attached. – Brenda Lavoieri

This is a Tiger Moth in the subfamily Arctiinae, and we scoured the pages of Insetologia until we located this image of Dysschema sacrifica that appears to be the same as your moth. The species is also pictured on BioLib.
