The species is not shown in the only book on Thai Noctuidae (if it is that family, the deeply scalloped wings remind me, somewhat, of a Vestura species!). It may even be a Geometrid, of which there are no Thai references available. Could you please advise where the photos were taken, so I can check on Indian, Indo-Chinese/Chinese or Malaysian records, depending on location.

Apart from the works undertaken on behalf of Bro. Pinratana, very little work has been done on Thai moths. His last volume, on Arctiinae, published in 2009, provided 65 species new to science and a further 200+ new species to Thailand, out of a total of 391 species.

Thailand "suffers", in this respect, from never having been colonised by western powers, whose scientists were in the vanguard in describing the fauna and flora of the region. There are still a huge number of species waiting to be discovered/recorded.

Sorry, I have checked all available resources to me, both books and internet, and have been unable to find this species. This is not an unusual occurence!
