Pterophorus pentadactyla

Recorded Width: 24mm,  Height: 12mm  -  Kinabalu, Borneo

This is not a re-post of the Asota producta. It was left there to show a scale comparison to the tiny white plume moth. This minuscule wonder reminds me of a battered shuttlecock after a good work out of badminton.

The id of this moth was referenced from Dr Giuseppe Mazza's website. I couldn't confirm the id on the Moths of Borneo online book.
