Ecuadorian Mountain Moth

Unidentified Moth Species - Buenaventura Reserve, El Oro Province, Ecuador


The windows of our field house sitting in the mountains on the Western slope of the Andes attracted lots of moths at night. I would periodically photograph certain individuals, this is one such moth. Unfortunately I have no idea about the species, during the course of my travels I have at times been astounded at the moth diversity in the areas i visit. That was certainly the case in Ecuador, at times our windows would be covered by dozens of moths and it would be a challenge to find two of the same species!
