Here are a few moths that have come to the light over the past few days.
(Click to enlarge)
No.1. Proteuxoa sanguinipuncta showing the striking markings on its wings.
NOCTUIDAE : Amphipyrinae
No. 2. This moth looks very similar to Cotachena histricalis
UPDATE: (Thanks MH) Hygraula nitens.
Caterpillars of this moth are aquatic.
CRAMBIDAE : Acentropinae
No. 3 was a tiny moth. I'm not sure if it's a Tineid as the palps are not really visible in this image.
Perhaps it could be something more exciting like Opostega sp from family Opostegidae
No. 4 is Diatenes aglossoides again showing nice wing colouration. It did not remain on top of the spider web for very long! :-)
NOCTUIDAE : Catocalinae
No. 5 is more than likely to be Uraba lugens again perching on my garden hose.
NOCTUIDAE : Nolinae
