ID to genus provided by BOLD Systems via DNA. A species match was not made. However the nearest DNA match was Euceratia castella at 97.55% similarity. The website lists only two species for this genus, both shown on the MPG website, with E. castella being the white moth. Thus my placement with this species. Confirmation, or.., welcomed!
