Spoladia recurvalis
Hawaian Beet Webworm, Spoladia recurvalis

It is found all over the world, especially the tropics and has most probably been spread by agriculture as it is a pest on beet crops. It looks like the 'weed' that it is on is a species of Beta. It has a variety of larval host plants. The name suggests its country of origin.

Hi Mariana,
very beautifully presented shot. both the moth as well as the surrounding flowers. The lighting is so wonderful that it gives a very outstanding view.
The pattern on the moth is so well detailed and sharp.
Lovely view.


Si Mariana, la fotografia de las dos Pieris es de esta primavera como puedes comprobar en la fecha.

Tu toma preciosa, con un excelente enfoque y un buen dominio de la luz.

Buena semana: Josep Ignasi.
