K C discovered this and we thought initially that he had discovered a new butterfly. On closer observation, it turned out to be a moth. :giggle:

According to Dr. Leong TM, it is most likely to be a geometrid moth, but he cannot
go further than that as he needs to see the upper wing to ID to genus ... :ko: :ko: :ko:
