Cydalima diaphanalis SPILOMELINAE CRAMBIDAE






 Family:- CRAMBIDAE
Sub Family:- SPILOMELINAE
Genus:- Cydalima
Species:- diaphanalis









  Cydalima diaphanalis SPILOMELINAE CRAMBIDAE

It is not easy to be sure of the identification of this moth. I have checked all the sample photos that I can find on various sites and believe that it is correct. The only other possibility is Palpita margaritacea (below) in the same sub family but they don't have the dot in the middle of the hind wing visible in some of my photos.
When looking for samples I should point out that some sites put both the moths in the Crambid sub family of Pyraustinae rather than Spliomelinae.
