“The adult moths of this species are varied in their colours, from an earthy grey to rich deep green, with a complex pattern of zigzag lines. The underside is pale brown, with a broad dark marginal band and a dark central spot on each wing”. With a wingspan of 45mm and body length of 25mm the green colours fade rapidly when the moth dies. With no common name, a new find on the wildlife refuge.
