Wing tufts

Found a small moth this morning caught up in a piece of cobweb which I cleared away so it would be free and then took a couple of photos. Only a small moth but it had an interesting feature of small tufts on the costa of each wing.

My search for the identification on the website gave me the best fit based on those tufts that are found on the male of the species Phrissogonus laticostata Apple Looper.
