Source of host record for Endoclita malabaricus

I would be most grateful to know if there is a published source for the record of Endoclita malabaricus damaging cloves as reported in the article by Teo Spengler posted at https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/clove-tree/controlling-pests-on-clove-trees.htm I specialize on aspects of the biology and taxonomy of ghost moths, to which malabaricus belongs and I had not previously come across cloves as a host plant for this species. I can be contacted directly at Calabar.John@gmail.com Sincerely, John Grehan http://johngrehan.net/index.php/hepialidae/
