Hello Haraprasan,
yes, I can help in identification of this micromoth which belongs to the same family and subfamily as the last one.
It is Pygospila tyres (Pyralidae, Pyraustinae).
Your picture shows the specimen extremely clear and sharp. Also the blue/green iridescence of the wings is nicely seen.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Haraprasan !
I wish I had such wonderful moths in my bathroom - but I only have ugly long-legged spiders ! :-) I really love the colors on this one, as well as his typical pose. Perfect sharpness and details, excellent use of the flash, beautiful composition. Very well done !

Hello Haraprasan,
another brilliantly well detailed true gem of a small Pyralidae moth.
I like your series of bathroom captures showing nature invading and decorating our territories in a well made matter-of-fact way.
I am storing and continuing to collect a number of nighttime kitchen-wall captures myself, but never shown yet.
Thank you! With best regards,

Peter (Batu) has the right species, though the placement is outdated. This species is now considered to be placed in the family Crambidae, subfamily Spilomelinae.

lovely clarity, but I suspect the white balance is a little bit on the blue side in this image - the white patches on the wings should be pearlescent.

cheers, Roger.
