Predator Confusion...

MAR. 2nd: I've just noticed on this London Midget that I've just reared that there is a prominent black spot near the apex of the wing in common with quite a few Phyllo species. I'm assuming it's to mimic the head end of the moth so would be predators are just as likely to attack the relatively unimportant end rather than a fatal blow to the head.
