STOMPer Monica thinks this white moth she saw in her room last night (June 30) could be a spirit of a loved one visiting her at home.
Said the STOMPer:
"This white moth was flying around my room last night!
"Usually they are either brown or black.
"I've never seen a white moth before.
"Does anybody know its name?
"Some people believe that moths are spirits of your close ones visiting."
While I've never seen this species of moth before, I for one do not see the need to ascribe the presence of moths to supernatural forces.
Update: I did a bit of checking, and my guess is that the moth pictured is a species of swallowtail moth (F. Uraniidae) known as Urapteroides astheniata. This is a species that is widely distributed across Asia and tropical Australasia, from the northeastern Himalayas in India to New Guinea and Queensland in Australia.
