Strikingly colorful moth of about 1cm in length, with a pattern of white spots on a metallic blue and orange background. The wings are curled at rest and the legs are striped. It looks like an Ermine Moth of the Family Yponomeutidae (Web Spinners) but I can't find one like it.
Came to a Black light, Km 15 on the highway between San Cristobal de Las Casas and Tuxtla Gutierrez, on a cliff overlooking the Grijalva River valley. Chiapas, Mexico.
