Welcome! :-)

Thank you Fyn.K for looking into this. I found out that we have 3 Chrysodeixis sp. in the Philippines, and all of them includes Luzon in its range. My place is in Southern Luzon. I did not see further breakdown of the Luzon area :(, so I'll have to go with Chrysodeixis sp. for now. Thanks again!

C. includens lives in North America, it's a perfect match for your moth... not sure if they live in the Philippines.
