Shot in Oct 11 in TPK, very tiny, and too tiny for me to tell it's feature as it just keep turning round and round on the leaf surface, sometimes even playing head down tail up position, I made a dozen shoots but only get this one clear due to it's constantly rapid moving, is it a moth or other?

Yes, this is a moth!!

Family = Cosmopterigidae (red eyes, long and fine recurved labial palps), but there is no formal identification yet to genus or to species. I believe a few specimens were retained by Prof. LI Hou Hun of Nankai University on his recent visit to Hong Kong, so there is a good chance that this species will be identified within the next few months or so.

Keep spinning around, wondering what species it belongs to
The blue luster on its wings is really attractive but a bit poorly shown in the pictures

Cosmopterigidae - genus & sp. indet.
I found it before and it also liked to move in circle.

I also have a set of photos of this species doing the same near the bottom falls at NTC.  Still don't have an i.d. for it yet.
