Abstract:
The sesiid moth, Akaisphecia melanopuncta O. Gorbunov & Arita, 1995, is recorded from Thailand for the first time, having originally been described from Vietnam and subsequently recorded from Laos. Photographs of a living individual are presented that illustrate that in life it is a very good mimic of red-and-black aposematic Hemiptera (Heteroptera) such as various predatory pyrrhocorids.
