Blue Moth

This photo was taken in Bengkulu Indonesia. When i saw this moth fly in my front yard, there was nothing special for me to take the photo of it. I saw it had a blackish green out side with some white small circles around its wing. But when it revealed its body as the photo above, i, this moth really had a hidden beauty.

From the discussion that follows in it is very likely that this species is from the genus Cyclosia with species name is Cyclosia panthona.
