Mystical Moths - other Insects

This section is devoted to some of those mystical creatures that we human beings love to exterminate! Yet they have their own beauty & an important place in the bio-diversity of any region. Unfortunately there is very limited literature on insects & hence they tend to be a much mis-understood lot. Would request experts to ID some of the species in this section. Unless otherwise indicated, these species were found in our resort located within the Mhadei Wildlife Sanctuary & many of the moths on the window of our restaurant or in my cottage - Mogra.
