Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: In an unsuspecting corner of a cob-webbed garden alcove, this moth looked as though it had been at rest for the sunnier part of the day. Our mystery moth was spotted in the garden on the wall beside what appeared to be yellow-orange moth eggs. Discovered someplace busy & needed to be translocated. The moth flew away into the brush while being transported. Weighed a around 5 grams or so.
