a good way to start your contributions to the Hong Kong Moths project - Pingasa chloroides is only found in Hong Kong!! It's one of four Pingasa species that occur in HK, and is separated from the other three by the narrower forewing and relatively uniform medial fascia on the hindwing that forms a smooth arc rather than a kinked arc.

Thanks for the id correction, sadly it won't be easy to add more to this group as I have had to return to the UK (not really my choice). Still nice to know I got lucky spotting this one.
