Hi Marnix,
What were they doing? I think it's the wrong time of the season for Golden Sun Moths. They are active in late spring / early summer, I think. Male GSMs patrol appropriate native grassland about knee height or lower depending on sward height, while the females sit near ground level and flash their golden lower wings at them if they want a mate in warn to hot weather.
