Last Sunday I was out at Mulligans Flat North. Lots of butterflies & moths around. One particular species caught my eye as it looked like the Golden Sun Moth.

Can anyone tell me whether that is possible?


The moth had an orange/black striped abdomen, brown/white patterned wings with some black, and a furry head with some black and white striping. They were in semi-native grassland which contained kangaroo grass among others.
