    1. Russell Best  ID by Marilyn Hewish who added "Re Eulechria heliophanes. If we go by the MV collection this is Oecophoridae Merocroca automima. However there are pics on the internet called M. automima that have a yellow, not black thorax. ANIC has both under that name. It may be a male/female difference."
