Purple Moonbeam feeding signs

on underside of Sandpaper Fig (Ficus opposita) leaf
I see the feeding signs, caterpillars (previous photo) and chrysales of this species, but rarely the adults

other sizes: small medium original auto

Looks like a map of built-on plots in a town with green space around!

They make a cool design while munching away - not much leaf left :( V

The feeding pattern looks much the same as our slug moth larvae, though there are also some sawflies who feed in a similar way, here. V

Interesting that they only eat the bottom of the leaf.
