On top of the box is written in neat, Victorian-era-type black handwriting the words: OTHERIS SCHBELLUM BRASIL QUENSTA. CATERINA NOV in capitals, thus. When I typed in `OTHERIS SCHBELLUM BRASIL` into Google, I came up with nothing. When I typed in OTHERIS SCHBELLUM I came up with several hits, including one that clearly showed my specimen was long faded. The moth should have a lower wing consisting of a bright orange and black zig-zag stripe, and an upper wing of a dull brown. However, it originates from only one country: Ecuador.
However, there is a faint stripe on my moth that is slightly different in form from the BOLD Systems Taxonomy Browser website (1) image of this moth. This website shows a fairly clear diagonal line whereas my specimen`s line is not so straight. If anyone can enlighten us as to whether or not there is anything significant about these discrepancies please can they let me know?
