second time this has been seen in the Sai Kung area this year (also on NMN 2010), but no i.d. for it as yet. Might be placed close to the genus Epinotia, but until some specimens are retained, there is no way to be certain of it's i.d.

Right - sorted this one out, it is Lepteucosma blanda (Kawabe, 1989)
Previously listed (in my thesis) for HK as Epinotia blanda.
My apologies for not recognising it at the time - I should have been able to get this one; perhaps the large extent of the macro scale within the photos threw me a little, as did the white medial patch on the forewing costa. So one less unidentified, and (sorry gentlemen) not new for HK.....
