Introduction
There about 3800 species in the family Notodontidae. The moths are found on all continents but are particularly well represented in the neotropical region. Most species have elongated wings which are cryptically patterned to resemble tree bark, twigs or fallen nuts, and are exceedingly convincing in their camouflage. To the human eye they often look very solid and 3-dimensional as a consequence of their convincing textures and shadow effects.
The genus Rhudara contains 10 known species, all of which share the same basic pattern as coralia.
Rhudara coralia is known from Guyana and Peru, but probably also occurs in Brazil and Ecuador.
