Ophyx ochroptera

Ophyx ochroptera CALPINAE EREBIDAE

This photo sat around in a group of photos I had failed to process since January 2017!
It is a rainforest species usually, and one of the possible larval food plants here is our Morton Bay Fig trees (Ficus macrophylla, MORACEAE).
We have 2 in the yard.
Wing span I think was about 50mm.






Family:- EREBIDAE
Sub Family:- CALPINAE
Genus:- Ophyx
Species:- ochroptera
