Garden Inhabitants

Hi all moth bloggers!

A bit late in the day/season, but I'm finally uploading a post!  My trapping has unfortunately been a bit non-existent this year, but here are a few interesting beasties found in the garden recently.  I think the above looks like a Brindled Plume? Also within a few inches of this plume moth, a Buff Ermine (I think) caterpillar was eating lavender.  Does this sound like an out of the ordinary foodplant choice?


  1. Those two Amblyptilia are rather troublesome. It looks a bit brown for punctidactyla to me, so it could be acanthadactyla. Can you assess the scale tufts on the hind wing?

  2. Beautiful photography skills you have and these grabs my attention. There would be the lots of people who love to improve their photography skills and get aussiewriter review help here. You are doing great work keep it up to share you related photographs online.
