That's amazing. As everyone else said, I wonder what type of species it is, and like FranzKiernanBuenaflor said, It's body and texture of skin does look moth-ish. But it's definitely is not a moth.

hi tmvdh and han_david. hmmm, yeah it really seems more like a true bug rather than a moth. I wonder what exact specie is this. Its color and texture is somewhat moth-ish :)

It looks like an assassin bug to me.

Hi, it's not a moth, but a true bug (Heteroptera).
