Hi, need to find photo of Euchaetes egle. It was suggested that this might
be it but I can't find a photo using many different search engines and both
the common and real name. Other types of Euchaetes had similar features but
without the ring of b/w hairs all around. Hairs were not crossed so
perfectly along the body in the others of this type. The body on mine could
not be seen at all.
