|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This little moth tested my belief in Darwin's theory: What possible "natural selection advantage" produced this exquisite creature sporting huge fake pupils on powder-blue eyes set off with a natty orange pashmina?|
Unfortunately, the only way I am able to identify a moth is to search for it on the Internet - but one can't believe everything that's posted there. Nevertheless, I'm pretty much convinced that this moth is an Asota producta.

seems you are correct. this could be an 'Asota producta'. but what's about 'Asota caricae'? given it a thought?
well, such a lovely presentation of this beautiful creature. wish few parts were not out of the frame. but good clarity. even the eyes are so clear! good one.
keep posting. enjoy Nature :)
