1) Crambidae: Polygrammodes elevata
2) If only I knew. I got the same species here in Suriname...
3) Noctuidae, Ophiderinae: probably some Letis sp.

I mostly use the site http://www.guianensis.fr/systematique.htm. It's about species from French Guiana, but I find it very helpful here in neighbouring Suriname. I'd guess it also has a decent overlap with T&T.

Cheers,

Scarabaeoid

Thanks, Mr. Scarabaeoid. This is all very useful. I'm headed down to Guyana in about three wks time, a birding trip but I'll be keeping my eyes open for any photographable leps!
i don't suppose you have any clues regarding the skipper I included in one of my recent postings?
Thanks again,
Paul

Glad I could help a bit! I won't be able to help with your skipper though. My knowledge of butterflies is far less than that of moths, since moths are far easier to photograph for me; I'm studying Surinamese scarab beetles (superfamily Scarabaeoidea, hence my forum name) and for that purpose I have made a light-collecting installation. Needless to say that it attrackts many moths which often pose quite well. Anyway, there are plenty people here who know quite a lot about butterflies.

Too bad that you're visiting Guyana instead of Suriname. Lots of birds and butterflies to see here, too, and many people speak English reasonably well. Each year still brings some new bird species to the total list for the country... And I'm just starting with try-outs for a dedicated insect tour as well (main dish is my light collecting installation). Maybe for your next holiday? ;-)

Cheers,

Scarabaeoid
