In Chinese characters, it is written as “Amata fortunei”.
It is derived from the white mottled Kanoko pattern on the black background of the wings.
This white part is actually free of scales and is visible through the back.
This species used to be an independent family from the Amata fortunei family, but is now included in the Amata fortunei subfamily within the Arctiinae family.
The tiger moth is written in Chinese characters as fire moth, light moth, light moth, fire thief moth, light thief moth, etc., but all of them are attached from the place where the light gathers at night.
However, although this amata fortunei is included in the Arctiinae family, it is a “diurnal” moth that flies in the daytime like butterflies and comes to suck the nectar of flowers such as erigeron annuus.
By the way, the body is black and there are two yellow bands, which are thought to mimic the potter wasps.
