Brown-Banded Hunter Hawkmoth

Theretra silhetensis


The wings look as it made of thin slivers of wood. There is a dot on each wing. Wing appears notched.


On a Christmas tree (Aurocaria) which was battered by Cyclone Amphan. Urban residential garden. It was resting after a night of torrential rain and terrible gales.


I have seen this moth earlier too but it is not common. Moth week 2020
