Moved
Moved from Tortricid Moths... to Pyraloidea, because some of the suspects are now placed in Crambidae rather than Pyralidae.

Pyralidae?
The only tortricid that tortricid.net lists as feeding on Psychotria lives in Kenya. The HOSTS database lists four pyralids that feed on Psychotria nervosa. There are many leafrollers/folders in this family, and some of the ones on BugGuide have larvae that look similar to this one. The only other species listed with this host is a gracillariid, which would probably be a leafminer and wouldn't look like this at any rate.

 
thanks
It could very well be a pyralid.
