Epipleminae

Description:

A 'T' shaped moth.

Habitat:

Light lamps at night.

Notes:

Its unique shape draw my attention. I saw it a few days ago, from a distance, for the first time, and then thought that I it's shape was not what I had seen. Then I saw it again yesterday. There were four of them. And it was a T shape.

It is not a plume moth but in the Uraniidae group. I believe this is a similar moth but they roll their wings up to look like a twig.
