Crambid Snout Moth

Your moth looks so similar to a North American Erythrina Borer that we surmised it must be related, and when we did a search on the genus, we found Terastia subjectalis on African Moths and we found Terastia africana on African Moths as well.  The latter species is reported from “Cameroon, DRCongo, Gambia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Uganda, Zimbabwe.”
