This super camouflager is the moth Oreta loochooana. As you can tell, it resembles (and very effectively if I do say so myeslf) a dead leaf. Even the caterpillar looks like a curled up dead leaf! When older, the wingspan reaches lengths of 30-37 mm.
Fabulous disguise guys! A really great job. Must be nice duping would-be predators.
