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.

    Elaine, that name is not in the published book, but was given to me by Pater Marriott. It is very similar yo Chloroclystis catastreptes, but does not quite match that species. Peter may have included it in one of the updates to the book, but I have been a bit slack in adding all the updates and cannot check at present. I might refer back to Peter on this one.

    Ken, I’ve looked through my MoV Part 3 book a dozen times and the Part 3 CD, but can’t find any reference to Chloroclystis sp. (1). Can you please let me know exactly where to look for a reference to Chloroclystis sp. (1), because I've found a moth that looks similar. Thank you
