Thank you for the beautiful collection of butterflies you have here!

I just took a picture of a tiny black butterfly (moth?). Wonder if you the name.

Best regards, Femia

No, I’m afraid I don’t recognize that insect. Although I love Curacao, I only raise lepidoptera that are native to Florida, so I’m not familiar with species from other places. Your specimen is very interesting, though: the white tips at the ends of the forewings caught my eye. They’re very distinctive. But are you sure it’s a butterfly or moth? I clicked on the picture to see the larger size, and the proboscis seems to be extended. If so, it’s very thick compared with to the proboscises of other butterflies and moths. It almost looks as though it’s too thick to coil up.

I spent some time reading your blog. Great pictures! You do a great job.

Do you know if the Butterfly Garden in Curacao is still open? The last time I was there, which was in the Fall of last year, I went out there a couple of times, but it was closed, and the lady who lives in the apartment above it didn’t seem to know much about whether it would reopen. I noticed that there Web site has gone dark. I really liked that place, and it would be sad to see it gone.

Thanks for your comment!
