Another moth taken at a 125w MV lamp on 6th February 2010. The ID is suggested and would be outside the flight period noted by Roger (but only by a month) and a new site. So probably wrong!!

2nd better file added.

maybe correct. Please note I mis-spelt the genus in my thesis - should be Coleothrix.

There are two other virtually identical species - Addyme inductalis and Calguia defiguralis, the former probably also resident in Hong Kong and the latter not yet confirmed.  Species of Coleothrix have a costal tuft of scales on the ventral surface of the forewing, near the base, which is very difficult to see without catching the moth and lifting the forewing.

Full details are given in

cheers,  Roger.

Pyralidae, Phycitinae - probably Coleothrix swinhoeella, though there are two other very similar species, separable only by dissection of the genitalia.

cheers,  Roger.
