Ectopatria horologa NOCTUINAE NOCTUIDAE

The larvae have been recorded feeding on Rhagodia parabolica which is one of the salt bush plants we have here. It is also likely that the larvae would eat some of the other salt bushes we have in this area.





Family:- NOCTUIDAE
Sub Family:-  NOCTUINAE
Genus:- Ectopatria
Species:- horologa


This one is in pretty poor condition and is probably at the end of its life.

Ectopatria Sp Poss horologa NOCTUINAE NOCTUIDAE

This moth is quite likely to be E. horologa. There are some differences in the markings, but that may  be just a natural variation.




Family:- NOCTUIDAE
Sub Family:-  NOCTUINAE
Genus:- Ectopatria
Species:- Possibly horologa

 Elusa semipecten NOCTUINAE NOCTUIDAE

I couldn't find much information on these moths.



Family:- NOCTUIDAE
Sub Family:- NOCTUINAE
Genus:- Elusa
Species:- semipecten 

Once again, this second moth is missing rather a lot of scales.
