Family Thyrididae










Family:- THYRIDIDAE
Sub Family:-
Genus:- Addaea
Species:-  subtessellata

Another unusual moth family here. Some times called  "Picture-winged Leaf Moths" because of the pattern on their wings. A small moth, body length about 12mm. (The screen grid is 2mm).


Family Crambidae


Family:- CRAMBIDAE 
Sub Family:- SPILOMELINI

Brightly coloured though they are it is still easy to miss them because the colouring depends to a great extent on the angle the light hits the scales.
