Beautiful moth on King Island

Posted by | No Tags | Uncategorized | 2 Comments on Beautiful moth on King Island

Not sure if this moth is a native of King Island or not, but it sure is a beautiful creature, about 80cm width.
Found him on the fly screen with his partner but they flew off before I could get another shot, maybe he was a she, having no experience with sexing moths it’s hard to tell.
Found the correct name for it: Opodiphthera helena.
