Small Magpie Moth
WE HAVE A WINNER!!!! No more calls, please!
Gentle Viewer and budding Entymologist Daniel Llavaneras of Caracas, Venezuela accepted the challenge and submitted a photo of our mystery moth to a website and found out what it was.
The common name of the moth is Small Magpie
Tha scientific name is Eurrhypara hortulata
Complete taxonomic classification:
BIG thanks to Jim McClarin from Nashua, New Hampshire USA and
bugguide.net for helping with the identification.
If you read Spanish or even just want to check out his blog, it can be found here.
What it was doing in my BATHROOM is a question I'll leave for another time.
Muchas Gracias, Daniel!
