Observed by Sandy Koi
Picture ID from Kaufman Field Guide to Insects of North America. Specimen did not fully emerge so was flying erratically.
Observed these Polka-Dot Wasp Moths mating on a rock by the side of a residential driveway in Old Town, Montserrat. On a nearby oleander plant, the 'oleander caterpillar' subadult stage of this species was observed as well.
The Polka-Dot Wasp Moth (Syntomeida epilais) is a species of moth thought to be native to the Caribbean. The species is also called the Oleander Moth after the Oleander plant, from which its young feed. Like most wasp moths, these moths are day fliers.
