It was attracted to the light in the balcony.. They are pretty common around here.. this would be my third spotting of the olepa family. They are pretty good at playing dead if you trap it and will fly away if it gets a chance. Almost all the spotting of moths are from around my home only( been extremely lucky lately :P).
