Lichen Moth from Singapore

Unknown Moth from Singapore
Hey there bugman,
Would you know what moth this is? We actually got them at caterpillar stage, about 30 odd of them. Each caterpillar was a dirty yellow and sticky if you irritated them. Due to a lack of food plant (i’m not sure what type of plant either) they were left for dead. But no! Surprised to see 3 survive and make it into adults (hah, better than none). The pictures are just one of the three…anyway, thanks for your help! It’ll be great to know what they are. &n bsp;

Hi Jon,
We can’t tell you the species, but this is a Lichen Moth in the family Lithosiinae.
