Remarks
Known since 2000 in California (Newport Beach), larvae on jasmine and oleander and probably other plants. Originally from Afro-Asian Region (India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand). Based on molecular data a new genus may be required for this species and its closest relatives. See article by M. Alma Solis, News of the Lepidopterists, Society, Autumn/Winter 2008, Vol. 50, No. 3,4, pp. 79-80, and photographic spread on page 95. (1)
