  2. Cathy Powers  Peter, this is a Hepialidae and from what I can see it looks like Abantiades marcidus (which are flying at the moment). I can't be 100% sure because of the angle of the moth in the image.

  4. Cathy Powers  Hello Peter, thanks for the additional images. I have had a serious look and I feel more confident that this is certainly a Hepialidae and most likely Trictena atripalpis. It is a female.
