While searching for butterflies, I have also found that the moths in Hong Kong are surprisingly colourful too. In fact there are about 2200 species recorded in Hong Kong so far, which is almost 10 times more than the number of butterfly species.
I have managed to photograph just over a dozen types this summer. Unfortunately not all of them are named. Any suggestions for identification would be appreciated.
Amata germana (Wasp Moth)
Obeidia tigrata(Leopard Looper moth)
Scopula limboundata (Large Lace-border)
Dysphania militaris (False Tiger Moth)
Lyssa zampa (Tropical Swallowtail Moth)-- a giant, wingspan up 16cm
