Field notes from Isla Colon:


This interesting moth is the only representative of its genus that I have found so far on Isla Colon.


It's worth noting that the pastures and forests where G. musta occurs on Isla Colon also support healthy populations of red-eyed tree frogs (Agalychnis callidryas). The red eye spots on the moth's hindwing exactly match the frog's eyes in both color and size.
