    Physical Description

    Roughly 20mm across wingspan

    Habitat

    Grassland near wet eucalypt forest

    Behaviour

    I thought this was a small butterfly at first as when they land they slowly shuffle their wings and open and close them in the sunshine. The underwings are thus exposed and they are quite bright orange.

    Food

    I would love to find out the food plant for this moths caterpillar?????

    Underwings (not visible in photo) are quite a bright orange

    Found right outside my front door. Lots of leaf eating beetles about on Eucalyptus obliqua but I have not seen this particular species before.
