Spilomelinae sp ID please

On 05 Dec '10, found some larvae on the leaves of a small tree (yet to be ID'd, pictured below) near the top of Mount Parker Road, Quarry Bay.  They "sew" the leaves together with their silk, one leaf on top of another, sandwich style and live in between.  There were at least three, maybe four instars represented together.  The moth's body length is 1.5 cm and the ws as pictured is 2.5 cm.  Due to the leaves drying out, I misted the oldest pupa with water and it eclosed the next day, 28 Jan '11.  Pupation was sometime before 15 Jan '11.  The plant's leaves are about 20-25 cm long or longer, are quite stiff and heavily veined.

Reply #2 kw_lam's post

It sure does; can you tell me if Lasianthus chinensis has really stiff, rather thickish leaves?

Yes, also the Chinese name means "rough-leave tree"
