Thanks Brian. I keep two bulbs 'on' the whole night at our house, one with a white sheet. I spotted this moth - quite small and relatively insignificant one - early morning (here) at 6.00am on the window frame. I saw it still sitting there at 8.50. By then it showed more details when the sun was up and quite bright, but not falling directly on it. So I took some more photos. One is this one.
Altitude of our house is 1,700m.

OK I'm dying from anticipation!! I want a Common and scientific name! If their isn't one - oh boy have I got one! This is probably my favorite moth of all time!! I would love to see it in sun light. DrNamgyalT.Sherpa can you give any more information about it? Was it attracted to a light? What elevation?

That's a pretty insect!

Very intimidating! With a werewolf head and a army of dragons lying on the wings. Incredibly cool!! I hope an ID is found for this one. (I know I have a weird imagination).
