    Default ID of this tiny moth

    Found a moth caterpillar on Bridelia tomentosa, and it turns out to be a tiny moth in its adult stage.
    Searching the web reveals that this should be a kind of plume moth.
    Any idea on the species ID of this moth?

    This looks to be a form of Nippoptilia.
    The closest is a Papuan species with the lower half of the thorax white.
