After seeing Richard's photo of a Green Aporandria, is this small 1.5cm moth another Aporandria?
Found it on my living room wall this morning.

This white moth flew into my living room tonight;
it's settled itself on the leg of an armchair.
It's about 6 cm wide. Is this a common one?

Angie,
Thanks for posting your moth sighting as we don't have much info on what moths can be found in Singapore so all records are valuable !

This is Urapteroides astheniata, a Uraniid moth, same family as the Lyssa zampa moth. There has only been a few sighting records. I am not sure if it is uncommon or people just ignoe them. According to the Moth of Borneo book, the larva feeds on Endospermum (Euphorbiaceae).
