1. the pictures at #7 have been IDed by David to be Zygaenidae, Chalcosiinae, Trypanophora semihyalina argyrospila (Walker, 1864).
Sorry for the mix-up, that's purely my ignorance, I took down the pictures to avoid further confusion XD but the adapted link addresses are still there
2. thanks for these pictures, amazing clarity. So #12 shows Spatulifimbria castaneiceps
Hampson and #13 shows what should now be treated as Spatulifimbria opprimata
, is that correct?...
most of the moth enthusiast blogs I saw only show the larvae of the latter, under the name of S. castaneiceps opprimata
I guess, um, if we want to solve this the peaceful way, now might be a good time for someone to repeat the experiment, rear a batch of these caterpillars from scratch and see what happens?.... so I'll be on the lookout for these larvae
on that occasion I only saw one individual though on a bannister.
