I have taken a few moth photo but have had a bit of difficulty in identification so haven't posted them but thought I should put them up regardless.

 This tiny moth about 1cm was on the screen door and I am reasonably confident on the identification as James Kershaw's Concealer Moth Heleroteucha kershawi that has a range through Queensland, NSW and Western Australia.

Today I manage a photo of a moth that I also took a photo of a few weeks ago, but unable to get the identification, but today I feel more confident and the closest I can find is Eulrichopidia latinus,  one of the NOCTUIDAE family.


  1. Lovely moths especially the latter one. Sorry can't help with id confirmation - I would imagine you have a lot more species in Australia than we have in the UK!

    1. yes we have a very large number of moth species and many look very similar so it is difficult to get the identification unless I can find a good photo on the reference sites I know.
      Thanks again for your interest.
