About 28 mm in body length, this is one of the larger Trabala Lappet Moth species. This is a female and female Trabalas are always larger than the males. Being green with a brown heart-shaped mark on the wing makes it look like a leaf with a dried blotch.

>>>Map accuracy: 10m. This is my 726th spotting and my 8th SOTD. Sorry for not uploading any spottings for almost a year. I would also like to greet everyone a Happy National Moth Week! The entomologist Roepke that described this species along with several other Trabala species named them after Asian deities and mythical beings such as Ganesh, Krishna, Garuda, and Hantu.
