Models and mimics are marvels in SE Asia

(Latest green news via Earth Times):

Look at those modified wings and the bee antennae. But this is no stinger or biter. It’s a clearwing moth, and you can find similar species near your own location worldwide. It’s all about the mimic, and its model- in this case a generalised stingless bee. Trouble is, you won’t find this guy. Good luck, but he seems to be almost extinct. One of those many new species that will disappear rapidly, just like many others that have been seen just as we destroy their habitat.
