Giant Sugarcaneborer, Castnia licus. Caranavi, Yungas, Bolivia. d. 6 February 2007. Photographer: Lars Andersen Giant Sugarcane-Borer, Castnia licus Fabricius (Castniidae).
The caterpillar of this gaudy moth bores into the stems of sugar-cane.
Castnia genus of dayflying moths, together with other Castniids, were a one time grouped with the butterflies they resemble in antennal shape, wingshape and coloration.
   
Coroico, Yungas, elev. 2000 m. 29 January 2009. Photographer: Lars Andersen Ctenuchidae.
Many of the 3000 species of this family of moths are mimics of various genera of wasp.
   
Chetone species. Caranavi d. 25 January 2010. Photographer; Lars Andersen Chetone Boisduval (Hypsidae).
About 11 species are place in this neotropical genus of day-flying moths. Most species are apparently mimetic partners of various species of Heliconiinae, Ithomiinae and other butterflies and moths.
   
Darna colorata. Kori Wayku inca trail d. 2 February 2010. Photographer; Lars Andersen Darna Walker (Hypsidae).
There are a present 18 species exclusively neotropical genus of moths. One group of brilliantly colored species which includes
D. colorata, is a model for species of Lucillella, a genus of Riodinidae butterflies. Another group is mimetically associated with Dioptidae.
   
Urania leilus. Caranavi d. 26 January 2010. Photographer; Lars Andersen Urania Fabricius (Uraniidae).
This is the only New World representative of its family. In colour patern and particularly in coloration it is similar to the African and Madagascan genus
Chrysiridia. There are about 8 species, all solely neotropical in distrubution.
   
Geometridae; Erateina julia. Caranavi d. 18 january 2013. Photographer; Peter Møllmann Erateina julia. (Subfamily Larentiinae).
comprises of about 80 known species. Most are dark brown on the upperside, with a white patch or bar on the forewing. The hindwings are often marked with streaks of yellow or red, but in some species are plain brown.
   
Pseudatteria volanica. Coroico, Yungas, Bolivia. d. 20 januar 2006. Fotograf: Lars Andersen Pseudatteria Walsingham (Tortricidae).
This is a genus of micro-moths with large, brightly coloured species, probaly some of the most remarkable-looking of all the neotropical
Tortricids. Since all the species of Pseudatteria are brightly coloured and conspicuously patterned it is assumed that they are the  distasteful models and the species in other genera, which look like them, the mimics.
   
Caranavi, Yungas, Bolivia d. 13 Januar 2005. Fotograf: Lars Andersen Linnaeus's Joker, Cyllopoda jatropharia (Linnaeus, 1758).

It seems likely that
Cyllopoda could be members of a mimicry complex that involves several genera of yellow and black diurnal moths including Formiana, Xanthiris, Seriocastnia and Myonia; and butterflies such as the metalmarks Riodinidae; Chamaelimnas briola and the skippers Pyrginae; Cabirus procas.

The genus
Cyllopoda comprises of 16 species. They are members of the family Geometridae, subfamily Sterrhinae, which is itself comprised of over 2800 species worldwide. Few however are as striking as the yellow/black Cyllopoda genus!
