Good Morning,
I’ve just returned from Colombia, South America and I’ve managed to identify everything except these remaining photos. I hope you can assist. They’re tricky, that’s for sure!

Dear Cokey,
The Giant Silkmoth image you submitted is most likely a member of the genus
Automeris, probably a close relative of the North American Io Moth.  We will contact Bill Oehlke to see if he can provide a species name.
