Hi Denise,

You could try the CSIRO website.  They used to have a page 'moths online'
but when I tried to access it this morning it wasn't available.  They have
updated their site.  You may be able to track it down through the main CSIRO
site.  It is difficult to ID invertebrates to species level on the web.  If
you have a photo you could send it to the closest museum.

Yesterday I spotted a Blue-faced Honeyeater and Forest Kingfisher having a
go in midair, at what I first thought was a tiny honeyeater.  The victim
turned out to be a giant moth.  It appears to be an Endoxyla sp.  Do birding
aussers know of a site where I can have this insect identified to specific
