[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Syntomoides imaon is a moth of family Arctiidae, subfamily Ctenuchinae. The systematics of the subfamily is under revision.

The moth has a wingspan of 34 mm. The frons and collar are yellow with the metathorax having a yellow streak. The first abdominal segment has a yellow band which is sometimes obsolescent. The fore wing has large hyaline patches, one filling the cell, another filling nearly the whole interno-median inter-space, one at junction of veins 2 and 3, two subapical, and two submarginal. In the form S. i. sargania, there is a long streak between veins 5 and 6. In others it is reduced to a spot or may be lacking entirely. The hind wing has a postbasal hyaline patch extending hardly (or not at all) beyond the cell. The tips of the antennae and proximal joints of the tarsi are white. The spots of the fore wing vary considerably in size.

Hello Foozi,

Very impressing image of this moth lookin like a wasp! The yellow colors are a over saturated but the exposition is good on the moth. The bg seems a little bit noisy.

Hello Foozi,
A very colorful and special moth with its yellow and black stripes. You had a quite difficult viewangle and you did well having the whole insect in focus. In Europe we have other species of this family.
Thanks also to have written me about the presence of the big seed-bug in your country. Globalisation too in the insect-world....
Kind regards

Hi Foozi,
