Day 126 Specious Tiger Moth

Specious Tiger Moth Asota speciosa

This beautifully marked and colourful moth came visiting us the other day. I had never seen one before so I checked my Field Guide to Insects and there I found it. It is called a Specious Tiger Moth and their larvae feed on Ficus tree leaves, that includes domestic figs. We have two fig trees in our garden so that is probably why they are here.
