Otonoma anemois

Otonoma anemois COSMOPTERIGINAE COSMOPTERIGIDAE

I have had this one on the unidentified list for a long time.
Thanks to Nick who has found a name for it.
I don't have anything on the biology of it.
I think the wing span was about 10 to 12mm.





Family:- COSMOPTERIGIDAE
Sub Family:- COSMOPTERIGINAE
Genus:- Otonoma
Species:- anemois

Hypocala guttiventris HYPOCALINAE EREBIDAE

Was:- Hypocala guttiventris CATOCALINAE NOCTUIDAE

I have already put this moth on the Blog on Tuesday, 9 January 2018, as Hypocala guttiventris CATOCALINAE NOCTUIDAE, but I now have some better photos showing the hind wings.

The forewing is variable in colour and often found without the dark area
Wingspan about 35mm.
This is a fruit piercing moth.
