Your letter to the bugman: Hello Bugman,
I found this insect walking along some gravel on the side of the road. It appeared to be injured and it could not fly. Could you please help me identify this species.

This beautiful wasp-mimic, diurnal Tiger Moth is Amata sperbius based on the resemblance of your individual to those pictured on iNaturalist and on FlickR. Perhaps it is recently eclosed and its wings are not yet capable of flight.
