More Cleora moths

Cleora sabulata ENNOMINAE GEOMETRIDAE

 

This moth is probably another example Cleora sabulata following on from last week.
 


Family:- GEOMETRIDAE
Sub Family:- ENNOMINAE
Genus:- Cleora 
Species:- Possibly sabulata

Cleora injectaria ENNOMINAE GEOMETRIDAE 


This moth matches up well on the wing patterns compared to other identified photos from reliable sources, but the host plants mentioned are predominately mangroves. We are no where near mangroves, the nearest being about 150 Klm away. One other host plant mentioned, the Excoecaria ( EUPHORBIACEAE ), does exist in this area but not on our property. The other alternative is that there is another host plant that has not yet been identified, that we may have.


 Family:- GEOMETRIDAE
Sub Family:- ENNOMINAE
Genus:- Cleora
Species:- Possibly injectaria

Rhuma subaurata GEOMETRINAE GEOMETRIDAE

 

This moth has been included this week because it is superficially like the Cleora species but belongs the sub family GEOMETRINAE. It is a quite spectacular moth but is not very common here. 



Family:- GEOMETRIDAE
Sub Family:- GEOMETRINAE
Genus:- Rhuma
Species:- subaurata
