This little geometrid moth (about 10mm long and 15mm wing-tip to wing-tip) is a member of the subfamily known as emeralds in the UK, though the colour on this is more like a pale jade. The Taiwanese name translates literally as "Red-bordered blue-green water geometrid moth". Maybe the "little red-bordered jade" would be an easier common name?

this species has been recorded on several occasions before in the central New Territories of Hong Kong, though this is the first time I've managed to photograph it. Looks a distinctive species, but so far searching for a match has proved unfruitful....

Description

Insecta: Lepidoptera
Crambidae, Spilomelinae
Niphopyralis sp B

Larvae of moths in this genus have been recorded as feeding on ant brood. Up to October 2014, only one species of Niphopyralis had been recorded in Hong Kong. In October 2014, a further two species were recorded, (spp B & C for Hong Kong), differentiated on size and antennal structure, as well as subtle differences in wing pattern.
The genus was until recently treated as the sole genus in the subfamily Wurthiinae, though Regier et al. (2012) synonymized Wurthiinae with Spilomelinae in their paper (A molecular phylogeny for the pyraloid moths (Lepidoptera: Pyraloidea) and its implications for higher-level classification Systematic Entomology 37: 635–656).
