Wasp Moths are about the same size of a small wasp and mimic its colouring. This particular species is known as Syntomis huebneri, but is also called Amata huebneri.

 

This disguise aides them in their protection, as predators are less likely to attack them if they believe they could be harmed. Even humans often take them for wasps. See also List of Thai Insect Names.
