Had four come to the light-trap and three had worn scales, one to the point of almost none left on the forewings. They flutter around and do not come to rest very easily. Once they have landed, they look for something to get beneath.
I've been seeing many, many honeybrown beetles (Ecnolagria grandis) around WHP in the past few visits. This female Sandalodes superbus, Australia's largest jumping spider, has decided to see what they taste like.
This small silky peach-coloured moth had a large irregularly shaped black patch in the middle of each fore wing. Small black specks were sen along the trailing margin and the sub-marginal border. Thorax was also a sooty black. Wing span was about 15 mm.
Spotted under bright lights in suburban garden. Plenty of native trees around.
I had this as A. robustus because I found it where I found a lot of A. robustus last season, but when comparing to previous images I noticed some differences. I'm pretty sure that this is A. alternatus.
