Fascinating Insects of Sumatra

The insects in the pictures below were taken by me as I was exploring nature in the Mbang forest in North Aceh.

I'd like to show at least two different species of moths and a planthopper to our #FascinatingInsects community.



Physically, the handmaiden moth resembles the wasp moth, or Amata Huebneri , so closely that I almost mistook it for one. However, it is known that the two species are closely related to one another. This moth's scientific name is Syntomoides imaon (Cramer, 1780).





While I couldn't determine the species of this one moth. Therefore, I can only come to the conclusion that it is Anania hortulata , a member of the genus Anania. Anyone who wants to correct my conclusions is welcome to do so, and I would greatly appreciate it.



Proutista moesta , a species of planthopper classified in the family Derbidae, is a strangely endearing creature with towering upright wings. Commonly found upside down behind bush leaves, in any case, I love the shape of the wings.

All of the images here are my own work, taken with Xiaomi POCO NFC smartphone and an assembled external macro lens.
