Continuing the Geometrid moths

Ectropis excursaria BOARMIINI ENNOMINAE GEOMETRIDAE

We are now getting into a series of moths that are very hard to separate by photographs alone.
Ectropis excursaria have been found to breed on a large range of plants. Further information can be obtained from :-  http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.com.au/enno/excurs.html



Family:- GEOMETRIDAE
Sub Family:- ENNOMINAE
Genus:- Ectropis
Species:- excursaria

Scioglyptis canescaria BOARMIINI ENNOMINAE GEOMETRIDAE

This moth, like the one above, are sometimes called bark loopers. In this case one common name is Fuscous Bark Moth.
I had this one in the genus Boarmia which it used to be in but was moved to Scioglyptis.
Although not completely sure of the species identification I am reasonably sure down to genus.



Family:- GEOMETRIDAE
Sub Family:- ENNOMINAE
Genus:- Scioglyptis 
Species:- canescaria
