Elophila responsalis 

Elophila responsalis ACENTROPINAE CRAMBIDAE

I am not 100% certain of this one. I do think it is an Elophila and it is probably is E. responsalis.
In two similar species, Elophila difflualis and Elophila obliteralis (a North American moth), the larval food plants for both are waterlillys and water weeds of various sorts. It is likely that E. responsalis larvae also eat water plants.
Wing span about 19mm.




Family:- CRAMBIDAE
Sub Family:- ACENTROPINAE
Genus:- Elophila
Species:- responsalis (Probably)
