Tiger Moth (Arctiidae)

in Hive Learnerslast year

This species of moth is also known as daylight moth (Amata trigonophora) belongs to Arctiidae. This moth has black wings with yellow spots. Its forewings are filled with five elongated oval yellow spots that attach nearest the wingtips while the head is black and yellow with two soft antennas on it. The thorax is primarily dominated by a yellow band and the abdomen is banded with a yellow and black strip. I found this lovely moth somewhere around the bushes near the public street a little while ago. As this moth look smaller, I had to use a smartphone plus an external macro device to capture it.
