      Dear Subramanyam,

      Do you have a lateral or dorso-lateral view of the moth, please?

      A head on shot is not good for identifying the moth.

      It doesn't look like a ghost moth (family Hepialidae); but more like either an Acontia sp.  (Noctuidae, Acontiinae) or a Westermannia sp. (Noctuidae, Nolinae, Westermannini) .

      cheers,

      Roger.
