Pantydia  Moths

Pantydia sparsa EREBINAE EREBIDAE

Was:- Pantydia sparsa CATOCALINAE NOCTUIDAE

Larval food plants include plants in families FABACEAE and SANTALACEAE.
We have a number of plants in those families.





Family:-  EREBIDAE
Sub Family:- EREBINAE
Genus:- Pantydia
Species:- sparsa

Pantydia metaspila EREBINAE EREBIDAE

Was:- Pantydia metaspila CATOCALINAE NOCTUIDAE

With this one the larval food plants are in the VERBENACEAE and FABACEAE families.






Family:-  EREBIDAE
Sub Family:- EREBINAE
Genus:- Pantydia
Species:- metaspila




There are more Pantydia that we see here but most of them are difficult to identify with any degree of accuracy so I might leave the others out for the time being. Perhaps I will revisit them at a later date.









Another example can be found in a post on "Pantydia capistrata CATOCALINAE NOCTUIDAE" on  Wednesday, 15 April 2015
