This is especially for Darina, because she can’t believe my moths are SO KINKY.
These are both males.
They’re hooked together really well.
This little grouping is one male, mated with a female – and then another male who has hooked up his claspers on the other male’s wing. I can’t imagine that would be comfortable.
But, once again… you can see that they’re firmly attached. Imagine supporting your entire weight by your prehensile penis, and you can get an idea what’s going on.
These two males must have timed it just right, because they usually can’t hook up with a female without a fairly clean mating of the genitalia. I’m not sure if one, both, or neither was actually hooked up enough to get the job done.
