Muslin Moth

Diaphora mendica – This is one of those rare occasions where I have spotted and photographed a moth out in the wilds. The first image is the female, and she is a little worse for wear with her faded wings and slightly torn edges. The species is sexually dimorphic. Compare the male in the bottom image.
