Ericeia elongata

Tai Po Kau Headland, New Territories, Hong Kong
recorded during a "National Moth Week" event

The ventral view greatly aids identification as there are at least three other similar species of Ericeia in Hong Kong, based on dorsal forewing pattern. The ventral pattern is diagnostic in all these species, with elongata having a broadly spaced bold double medial fascia on the ventral surface of both fore and hind wings. The hind wing is also distinctly angled at the junction of the dorsum and termen (giving rise to the name acutangula, a junior synonym of elongata).
