Bee-mimic moth IMG_9769 copy

Bee-mimic moth? When I first saw it, I thought it was a stingless bee (Tetrigona sp.). Family: Sesiidae - Tribe: Melittia (suggested by Vlada Hula). Selangor, Malaysia.

 

Tinthiinae, most likely of the

genus Ceratocorema. Specimen needed to determine the species - Dr. Axel Kallies.
