Little Brown Moth

Holocraspedon vaneeckei


A small brown-colored Erebid moth resting on the wall. It's small size and dull colors makes it receive less attention from photographers, explaining why there is almost no photo of this species in the Internet.


Rainforest of Tawau Hills Park, Tawau, Sabah, Malaysia (Borneo). Currently can be found in Sumatra and Borneo only.
