@donhe The 4 eggs I collected have hatched - probably a day or 2 ago. I have collected a few different gum leaves to see if they will feed on any of them.

Super. Were the eggs laid on anything? Size?

There were 2 on the moth as per the 2nd pic and the other 2 were on my light sheet where she was resting. Eggs were under just 1mm and the cats are 10mm at present.
