    Thanks Tamara, Ethan, Ken & Alex. You've helped ID my badly bruised, thrashing moth from last night. She calmed down only when offered a large piece of bark, which I found really touching.

    Very large moth (body at least 8.5cm long) with a deformed wing and unable to fly, flapping awkwardly to keep its balance as it crawled up the branch of a shrub.
