Zophopetes dysmephila

Another Hesperid that found its way into our house one night, the Palm-tree Night-fighter, similar to the Strelitzia Night-fighter. Again, despite a number of self sown Phoenix reclinata (the food plants are palms) in our garden this is my only record. The dots on the hind wing, as well as the colour of the antennae are characteristic, but only the female has the white stripe.
