Please tell me this is a new species

Cucumber Moth

Dear swensown,
This is NOT a Clearwing Moth.  Because of its striking resemblance to the North American Melonworm Moth, we knew this had to be a relative in the same genus, which allowed us to quickly identify the Cucumber Moth,
Diaphania indica, thanks to the African Moths site.  The species is also well represented on iSpot.

Thanks very much. You’re info is awesome. Keep it up. Well done
