Would love to know what these tiny insects are. They are on the forewing of a seemingly healthy Arctiine moth. Tiny!

These are flies (so you could have chosen the forum "Diptera (adults)" Wink) and belong to the Ceratopogonidae, probably genus Forcipomyia. They suck haemolymph from the wing veins. See https://diptera.i...ad_id=8720!

Thank-you Sundew! I wish now I had tried to get a closer photo. I did not see these insects until I examined the moth photo.

Hi. Please delete all photos of E. carrapateira I've uploaded. I did not remember that I already had uploaded that species in particular. Except the pallidifacies (this was not present yet). Thank

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
