Hi, I found this little moth in my grandmother’s house on April 14 around 11.00am. – 12.00pm. Location neither southern north nor northen central. I wonder whats its common name is because I very love insects including Lepidoptera. I will share more of moths and butterflies pictures because I caught some catterpillars and pet it and release it in to the nature. sorry for language.

Tiger Moth: Utetheisa pulchelloides

Dear Focus,
This is NOT an Ermine Moth in the family Yponomeutidae.  It is a Tiger Moth in the genus
Utetheisa, probably Utetheisa pulchelloides which we located on the Farangs Gone Wild site and the Butterfly House site where it states:  “The species occurs widely in the Indo-Australian region, including : Borneo, Cook Islands, New Zealand, Thailand, and much of Australia.”
