Another interesting semi slug / snail with shell embedded inside the muscle.

這種是我首次拍到,跟以前影到的樹棲蝸牛類似都是皮包殼的! 在網上見到類似品種 馬氏鱉甲蝸牛 Parmarion martensi,唔知有無高手認到呢種。

Comostola pyrrhogona

Lam Tsuen Valley, Tai Po, Hong Kong

This little geometrid moth (about 10mm long and 15mm wing-tip to wing-tip) is a member of the subfamily known as emeralds in the UK, though the colour on this is more like a pale jade. The Taiwanese name translates literally as "Red-bordered blue-green water geometrid moth". Maybe the "little red-bordered jade" would be an easier common name?
