Author's notes

Chrysolarentia severata? Despite the poor image am submitting this one for consideration (for the record). Followed this moth for some time. Moth would fly around for a distance then very briefly settle upside down on the side of fallen branch/rock fluttering wings rapidly before moving on. Only had the one chance for a photo when it settled on the ground for an instant at a distance. Wingspan: approx 25mm or so. Appreciate the difficulty in making a call due to image quality.
