Emerald

Mixocera albistrigata

Description:

small blue-green moth about 10mm long (open wingspan would be about 20mm

Habitat:

subtropical tree/bush savannah with hot, intermittently wet summers and dry, mild winters.

Notes:

when trying to pin down a species name I discovered there are a number of genera with little green moths bearing cream coloured stripes and leading edges to the wings. The stripe on this species is particularly pronounced which may provide a clue to its ID to someone with more knowledge
