    Hi Jobymon Cherayil Prakesh

    I believe its a Mating Pair of Gastropacha Species of Lappet Moth. When seen sitting they appear like a dried leaf.

    They do look like lappet moths. Not sure about the exact ID, Chandrasekaran might be right. Nice find. Why is there image quality loss here?

    Nice to see this. A wider composition would have been better, as there is hardly any space around them. This also appears to be a large crop and there is pixellation in the image. So you can upload a large image upto 1024 pixels on the longest side and less than 300kb file size.

    Were you hand holding? Thanks for sharing.
