Taxeotis moths, OENOCHROMINAE GEOMETRIDAE

Because there a number of species in the Taxeotis genus that look very similar, it is not possible to be absolutely sure of the identificationa of these moths from photos. However, I have tried to name them correctly but in this case there is a lot of room for error.
Please consider the species names to be possibles rather than absolute.

Taxeotis intextata OENOCHROMINAE GEOMETRIDAE

Sub Family:- OENOCHROMINAE

The photo on the right is of a moth that has suffered a fair amount of damage from lost scales. this accounts for some of the difference between them.
