Eupterote mollifera


Wikipedia Abstract

Eupterote mollifera is a moth in the Eupterotidae family. It was described by Walker in 1865. It is found in India, Burma and Sri Lanka. The wingspan is 64-84 mm. Adults are similar to Eupterote fabia, but are smaller, with the ground-colour always yellow or drab in both sexes, often more or less suffused with rufous. The forewings have at most five waved lines within the double postmedial lines, one of which is often obsolete. The hindwings have three lines at most within the postmedial lines and the outer waved line and spots within it are variable.
