"be careful - this is a species complex and the degree of curvature on the white band is a clue to the correct species. Being dealt with by Yen Shen Horn through molecular analysis at the moment."
so I'm not sure what to think about the ID - several white-banded moths in this genus seem to look quite similar.作者:

Depending on which aspect of curvature Roger's talking about... e.g. the lower edge of yours is not nearly as "scalloped" as is mine. Your's looks quite similar to the first several of the supposed P. attratus images on the link you provided, while at least two of the later images has the same scalloped lower band edge as mine. Roger is the one who id'd mine as gloucopa originally, but that was some time back, perhaps before the issue of curvature was raised. The two larva images and at least one of the foodplants match the larvae that produced my imago. (for what it's worth.)
