Australian moths represent a diverse fauna of between 20,000 and 30,000 species. They have been studied nowhere near as much as have their butterflies of Australia - of which there are less than 400 species. It can be extremely difficult to associate the larval and adult stages of moths as so little is known of there lifecycles. Hopefully, this Project with attract moth enthusiasts to share their images and knowledge.

    The underside of this moth was bright yellow and seemed to sparkle in the sun. The very opposite of its' stealth top cover.
