yes - that's why I wrote "correct i-d"

Many thanks for the date info. Definitely puts this as the earliest flight record - more global warming influence, maybe?


作者: BWA    時間: 2007-4-5 09:12

Yes, the photo was taken last Sunday, 1/4/07 at Tai Ho.
It flew away shortly before some Black-faced Laughing-thrushes came - could it have detected the birds and fled?

Thought it was a Dysphania militaris but found it more like Obeidia tigrata from you plates.

Thanks for the id. :D

Yes - in Hong Kong this is a widespread and common species, normally with one generation a year, flying mid-April trhoguh mid-May. I have a single record from mid-October, so there must be some years with a "partial" second generation.

This is Obeidia tigrata

belongs to the family Geometridae, subfamily Ennominae.
It is a common and widespread species in Hong Kong, normally on the wing in May and early June.

This is a very common species found throughout HKSAR. It is partially bivoltine, with the main emergence in late April through May, plus a few records from October. It is easily seen being both nocturnal and diurnal.

Which, due to the rarity of such a similarity (as you know) made me suspicious,
until I had the larva and pupa eclose as the moth!
作者: vagrant    時間: 2013-3-24 05:44     標題: Geometridae, Ennominae - Obeidia tigrata (larva & host)

Photos are taken on mid-March, the host is Psychotria asiatica ( 山大刀,九節), first time only saw a few larva around. When I visited again , I found "nest" with larvae (pupae?) inside.

The host - Psychotria asiatica ( 山大刀,九節)

作者: dlmohn    時間: 2013-3-25 02:37

By any chance, did you happen to actually observe any of the larvae eating the leaves of the Psychotria leaves?  I ask only because in your photos, all the bite marks are browned edged, indicating the chewing took place maybe 1-2 weeks before.  That, and I have yet to find any geometrid larva eating Psychotria (though I concede, it may be possible).

Can you say where you saw them?  Also,
the "nest" is a loosely woven cocoon.

作者: vagrant    時間: 2013-3-25 11:57     標題: 回覆 #2 dlmohn 的帖子

thx, dlmohn, I found a few larva(6) on the same plant,The whole plant with numbers of leaves being bitten.
There was a Euonymus nitidus中華衛矛 close to the plant and with two larva on it, but the  Euonymus nitidus without any bitten leaves....

I can visit again today to see whether any larva still eating leaves, but i afraid they already form pupae already...

If you need exact location, I can PM you instead.

That would be super!  Also, take careful pictures of the cocoon/pupa structure and see if there are not peculiar structures at one end or the other...kind of like a horn made up of the cast off skin.

Also, if you've time, pls examine the neighboring foliage, maybe up higher (got binocs?) and see if you can discern any cats munching away.  Thanks!
作者: vagrant    時間: 2013-3-27 16:48

I visited again on Tuesday, finally found a larvae feeding on a climbing plant just nearby.
Now only wait for the ID of the plant.

The pupae may be still inside

The one is a similar plant nearby, but I'm not sure whether is the same species...

Excellent work!  We've almost got the LFP!   Critical info!
Thanks much!    And, I'd say the final pic is the same plant as in the previous ones of your post:   Same leaf structure, same red leaf-stem, same alternating leaf-on-stem pattern, and about the same bite pattern of the caterpillar as the pics above.  Only remaining Question now is, What's that plant?

it is indeed O. tigrata.
a common species in HK, as you note, though still eye catching. Primarily a Spring time species (seen in April through to mid-May), with a partial autumnal emergence, i.e. a handful of records from October/November, compared to several hundred vernal records
