Fruit Piercing Moth

Phyllodes staudingeri


I've been trying to i.d this moth but these photos were taken on zoom up under the eaves of the roof so not particularly clear. On checking Thai Bugs site I think it resembles Phyllodes

Thanks for your suggestions bayucca. I have lightened the 5th image hoping it might show the markings on the wings, not sure if it will help.

Personally I would slightly tend to Phyllodes staudingeri, but I am not sure. There are also Phyllodes eyndhovii and Pyllodes verhuelli.

I've cropped the only two images I have bayucca. Not sure if this will make it any easier for an ident though

Phyllodes is correct, but your moth is too small for getting closer. Please, can you enlarge it?
