David Francis and Andrew Brown starred this.

  1. Vuk Vojis  Nemophora panaeola fam. Adelidae. There is not record in Data Base, I saw hundreds of them enjoying sun.

    • David Francis  N. panaeola seems to be Queensland only although the yellow mark near the base of the wing does suggest panaeola. If panaeola this would be the first record on the ALA out of Queensland. It would be good to see another photo.

  3. Cathy Powers  I have had P. Marriott have a look at this and it is probably not N. panaeola. He suggests that it be named Nemophora sp. and I concur, however it is a beautiful image of a wonderful little moth.
