Round-eyed Striped Noctuid Moth13/12/14

Round-eyed Striped Noctuid's (Grammodes ocellata) have been coming onto the deck of the house over the last few nights. Our Daughter thought they were beautiful and photographed them so we could look up what they are.   Round-eyed Striped Noctuid's have a wingspan of 40mm and are from the Noctuidae family.

  4. When I first looked at the thumbnail for the first image I thought it was a bizarre snake! Then my brain kicked in ...!

    Very spiffy moth.
