Penicillifera apicalis

Recorded Width: 31mm Height: 12mm at Bukit Larut, Malaysia

A member of the Bombycidae family of moths, this specie of silkmoths has an inclination to stick its rear end up and bend it prominently. A cool snow white coat covers the wings and body, giving it a pure look only to be blemished with what looks like black hot cross buns at the centre of its forewings.
