Catocala, also known as the drinker of the moth world, encompasses a fascinating array of species. Among them are the striking blue underwing and red underwing moths, which captivate with their vibrant hues. These magnificent creatures showcase a spectrum of colors ranging from deep blues to fiery reds. Within the Catocala genus, we find various subspecies such as Catocala pacta and Catocala coniuncta. The Catocala pacta moth stands out with its unique features, while the French red underwing and dark crimson underwing varieties add an air of mystery to this enchanting group. The light crimson underwing moth, scientifically known as Catocala promissa, showcases delicate shades that blend seamlessly into nature's tapestry. On the other hand, the dark crimson underwing (Catocala sponsa) exudes elegance with its rich tones. Not limited to just these species alone, there are others like Setina aurita and dew moth (Setina roscida) that share similarities in appearance with some members of this diverse family. Additionally, we encounter intriguing names like Catocala hymenaea, Amerila puella, and Isturgia famula within this realm. Amongst all these captivating variations lie even more wonders - meet Catocala conversa and Catocalanymphaea alongside oak yellow moths. Sweetfern underwings and oak yellow underwings grace our surroundings too. And let us not forget about Lunar yellow underwings or Langmaids yellow wings – each one showcasing its own distinct charm.
