Obviously this photo uses a little digital trickery. The right half is the original photo, including the reflections, and the one on the left is a mirrored copy. I hope you like it.

 Metopiora sanguinata HADENINAE NOCTUIDAE

The moth, Metopiora sanguinata, below is not a fake. They breed on grasses and are fairly common at times in the northern and eastern parts of Australia. Leaving some grass un-mown around the yard certainly increases the chance of seeing them, as with all the grass moths.




Family:- NOCTUIDAE
Sub Family:- HADENINAE
Genus:- Metopiora
Species:- sanguinata





This is the last post for 2015 and I will be back in the New Year.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and remember, January is usually a bumper month for moths.
