Sorry we can't identify the moths - we just don't have any experts to do it at the moment. However, we'll keep this record as a plant record. Maybe next year we will try moths.

Hello Michael, is there a possibility to have a look at the moths in this photo now?

Hi Wandiyali, I've changed it from a plant sighting to an insect sighting and it is in among the Unidentified insects now. Hopefully someone will know what it is. See
