This tiny insect (6 mm) is a puzzle. Try as I did, I could not decide whether the white fluff is part of the insect's body or material being carried for camouflage. Dr.Shukla's expertise is again required for identification.

palanki-narayana The moth is alive. I will post another photo showing the moth crawling on a tree with the fur well displayed and the insect underneath hidden. After taking the second photo I realise that the fur is a part of the body and not camouflage.
