Over 40 species of moth graced the light during November 2013, including several new species like the stunning Iropoca Moth, at left. Most species were from the Family Geometroidea, the waves, carpets, emeralds and allies.

Though slowly becoming familiar with some of the moth Families and Sub-families, I’m still very easily bamboozled, in spite of Peter Marriott’s brilliant little series Moths of Victoria.
