Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Observed off the coast of Belize. I was on a diving vacation on a live aboard boat. We would moor near one of the outer islands on the reef off the coast. One evening this butterfly/moth flew onto the boat. I'd never seen anything like it and snapped a couple of pictures. I've been searching to try to id it.
