Amata phegea (Linnaeus, 1758)

Category: Arctiinae

In all of Europe we only have six species of the Amata Genus - if we step up to the Tribe where Amata belongs, we get 3 additional Dysauxes species . In Africa below Sahara there are over 100 known Amata species.

Have a look at these on this nice AfroMoths website. There is no direct link to the Amata Pictures, you have to do some work yourself.

Click on this link http://www.afromoths.net/species/pictures and then type in "Amata" in the "Filter by genus" Dropdown. Enjoy!
