Please tell me this is a new species
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.
