Found this one at Lei Yu Mun; the "cocoon" was on a ficus (superba?) leaf, though it's not clear if this is the LFP.

More specifically,

Brenthia sp. nr. catenata Meyrick, 1907

The HK species has yet to be determined to species - this is a genitalia dis-section job (and requires a very steady hand!) still pending. The species apprears to be diurnal, but is also attracted to light at night. I've recorded it throughout Lam Tsuen valley (from Fong Ma Po to KFBG) and at Lung Kwu Tan (Tuen Mun) and Mark Sterling bred it from Tai Tam. It is probably a widespread and common species in HK. As far as I am aware, the whole of the Choreutidae have not been studied properly in the S.China region and many of the species here are probably undescribed.

cheers,

Roger.

Brenthia sp. nr. catenata

Choreutidae.

This species (and all others in the same genus) are thought to be Batesian mimics of Salticidae (jumping spiders)

cheers,

Roger.

Brenthia sp. nr. catenata (Meyrick, 1907)

Choreutidae.

B. catenata is known from India, Sri Lanka and the Philippines, so is possible - the markings are close, too. However until such time as Hong Kong specimens are dissected and compared to other material I will not confirm the identification of the HK species.

regarding reference book - you'll find my Ph.D. thesis is available online; please see my Flickr profile page - http://www.flickr.com/people/hkmoths/
It's a little out of date now (species name changes and additions, plus a few errors and misplaced captions), but should still be a useful point of reference.

cheers,

Roger.

The diversity of HK moth species is so great!

Good for you!

If you have any problems (very likely for a good many of the 2,300 or so species recorded so far), I and a few others on this forum will do what we can to point you in the right direction.

Absolutely no 100% guarantee of a species identification every time though!

cheers,

Roger.
