A few selections from a couple of recent mothing sessions - despite millions of very annoying small insects, including mosquitoes! :-)

Identification of this Plume Moth is pending.
UPDATE: This is Stangeia xerodes. (Thank you, Donald.)
This is possibly Thrincophora sp. It is similar to a moth I photographed last December that Donald Hobern helped with identification as Thrincophora signigerana.
I suspect this is Placocosma resumptella
OECOPHORIDAE : Oecophorinae
Probably Hellula hydralis
CRAMBIDAE : Glaphyriinae
A more normal looking Dissomorphia australiaria compared to the pale orange looking example I photographed earlier in the month!
GEOMETRIDAE : Ennominae
Maroga melanostigma (Fruit-tree Borer)
OECOPHORIDAE : Xyloryctinae
I think this is probably the Case/Bag Moth Lomera boisduvalii
No. 8 Tanyzancia argutella
OCEOPHORIDAE : Oecophorinae
A Noctuid, perhaps?
UPDATE: Probably Dasygaster padockina (thanks MH)
