Thubana eremophila is a moth in the family Lecithoceridae. It was described by Kyu-Tek Park in 2013. It is found in Cambodia. [1]

The wingspan is 16–17 mm. The forewings are purplish dark brown, with two different lengths of yellowish-orange streaks basally. There is a well-developed large yellowish-orange costal patch and a yellowish-orange streak extended from the costal patch to the apex along the costa, as well as a round stigma on the outer margin of the patch medially. There are dark-brown scales along the margin of the termen. The hindwings are dark brown, with a bundle of orange-white hairs at the base.

Etymology

The species name is said to be derived from Greek eremos (meaning lonely, solitary) and philus (meaning love). [2] In ancient Greek, the proper word for "love" (in the sense of affection or fondness) is philia (φιλία) or philos (φῖλος). [3]
