Spot the Moth

Artist's Description

I spotted this black and white moth happily resting on the side of my brick letter-box, sheltering from the rain.

Its wings are a grey/white colour, with black spots and squiggles.

I couldn’t believe how well it camouflaged with the colour of the bricks behind. A perfect match!

The Red-lined Looper Moth or “Red-lined Geometer” (Crypsiphona occultaria) is a moth of the Geometridae family. Based on its feathery antennae, this specimen is a male.

Close-up captured in Sydney, NSW, Australia.
