The Brisbane Ranges has a biodiverse moth fauna. Many detected species have yet to be identified. This collection is an attempt to offer identification features, in photos and tags, that may assist others observing moths in the Brisbane Ranges to apply correct species identification to their observations.
This species is variable. It can be dark grey or lighter grey with black lines. It can also have light brown markings on both forewing and hindwing (see next observation). Largish moth; eight appeared at the light-trap.
Second image displays the bright yellow hind-wing. The resting position of this species is the 'tent' position but when flying the hindwing colour is more obvious. Five came to the light despite the cold night air.
This species comes to the light readily however only once in the past has it landed on the sheet. Invariably it sits on the ground using the stones and leave litter as camouflage. This image was not posed but rather an opportunistic observation which portrays the similarity of the leaf to the moth wing shape, colour and markings.
