There is a strong religious significance for this moth. But i dont know what it is yet!

Thanks Adarsha for the information...Now I know why its named like that...Sunda Island of Indonesia as well because most of ancient civilizations in Southeast Asia braced Hinduism...

Sunda is 792nd name of Lord Vishnu (In Hindu gods), which means one who has mercy. It looks like a leaf which is used for Vishnu pooja in temples.
Wonderful spotting!
