Leafrolling Bellmoth

Archips machlopis (Walker, 1863)

Description:

Wing length: 18 mm.

Habitat:

Cherry, pines, bamboo and other mixed forests. Cool to warm place. Altitude: 1,700 m.

Notes:

I spotted this relatively large Bellmoth on my light and white sheet around mid-night. Sometimes I need to visit my 'light sheet' at mid-nights, otherwise most of them will be eaten by birds by early morning! And this particular time also happened to be around the new moon night.
