Well done :-). Even Siphanta genus might be in doubt. I just searched and found several other genus which look similar too. It seems there are very many similar genus and species worldwide and much work needs to be done to describe them all. Here's a 'Euphanta sp.' from our part of the world with a similar prominent cephalo-thorax

Ornithoptera80 and Mark Ridgway thank you for correcting me. I am not an expert in this field and do need your expertise advice now and then.

Hi Raksha...
Fabulous set of pics but please remove this from any mission about moths or butterflies. It is in the family Flatidae (plant hoppers) and is possibly in the genus Siphanta but I doubt it is Siphanta acuta.
Thank you.
