Description

Thalaina angulosa which is not in the data base. These moths are very similar to Clara's Satin moth.
"The forewing pattern is similar to that of Thalaina clara but that has a straight brown line from the costa to tornus, whereas Thalaina angulosa has a straight brown line from the base to near the middle of the margin." from-http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.com.au/naco/angulosa.html

  1. Cathy Powers  Andrew - I have added the species to the dataset. Another feature that distinguishes this from T. clara is the hindwing markings. Yours show the distinctive black mark and line whereas the black spoton the other species does not have the line. Nice observation!
