Cerodirphia Avenata -Male
Cerodirphia Avenata -Male -Costa Rica -(2.75 in wingspan).
This is a moth which illustrates some of the differences between moths and butterflies.
That is, pink is a very rare color in butterflies and when there is pink it's sparse.
But pink is fairly common in moths such as this one which is almost all pink.
Furthermore, the markings including the antenna, thorax and abdomen can be
much more bizarre in moths.
