What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Geometrid moth from Australia

Hi Daniel,
I thought you might be interested in the photo I took this week of a moth that had flattened itself so well against a tree trunk, that at first I thought it was a strange pattern on the bark. I have identified it as Cypsiphona ocultaria. I wish I could have seen its underside, which apparently white, marked with black and crimson. See:

Hi Grev,
Thanks for sending your lovely Spanworm Moth or Inchworm Moth from the family Geometridae.  We were unable to get the csiro link to work.

    The CSIRO website was down for a couple of days, Grev’s link should be working now.
