Hi Bugman,
I’m searching for more than 3 months to identify a bug, also used your site, but still not convinced that I’ve found it.
I’m thinking of Amata Grotei. but can’t find extra scientific information about it.
Here a similar picture I’ve found, but the wings are different (http://www.thaibugs.com/wp-content/gallery/syntominae/IMG_7693.jpg)
Another one can be Amata grotei, colors are different, but the wing matches perfectly. (maybe the color differences are between male or female )

Or the ceryx amaon 4 can also be the one (http://www.thaibugs.com/?page_id=210) at the bottom of the page.
Or perhaps it’s a Sessiidae Clear-wing Wasp Moth
Hope you can help me out here!
Thank you very much in advance.

Wasp Moth

Dear Mr Ronald,
The best we are able to provide for you at this time is a general identification.  This is a Wasp Moth in the subfamily Arctiinae.  We found a mating pair from China pictured on FlickR, but alas, only the general identification is provided.  Perhaps one of our readers will be able to provide better information.

Location: Thailand
