4 thoughts on “Moth: Talanga quadrimaculalis

  1. Hello,

    I’m an expat from the States, currently working through the JET Program.

    I just saw this moth outside my door this evening. Not knowing what it was, I was stunned to find your site through the new Google photo search! (I didn’t think it worked very well last time I tried…)

    It may interest you to know that I live in Hachinohe-shi, Aomori-ken. It’s a rather remarkably hot and humid summer this year, perhaps making the perfect habitat for these moths up here. I don’t know anything about their usual range, though.

    Thanks for your site, and good luck adding to your collection!

  2. Hello
    I was hoping that you could assist me in something.

    I am a one-person team who is trying to find the species identity of insect species occuring in the game Animal Crossing.

    At the minute I am stuck on a particular moth. In the game it is simply named “Moth”.

    At first sight I can tell it must be a Saturniid, and have subsequently traced it to a possible Caligula sp. but have not been able to find information on japanese species.

    Picture here.

    I don’t suppose you can help or send this to someone who can?

  3. Mr. Stott,

    Thank you so much for sharing all these beautiful insects photos. I’m currently a student at Purdue University (USA). Would you mind if I use your insect pics in my thesis?

    Please email me ASAP.
    I really appreciate your help.
