Hi guys,
Thought you might like this shot of Diaphania indica taken in my vegetable garden where cucumbers and rock melon are growing..
This is a female. They use the tufted abdomen to disperse pheromones by waving it around when they land. The other interesting thing about these is that they only have four legs.

Cucumber Moth

Hi Trevor,
Your Cucumber Moth is a dead ringer for our North American Melonworm Moth, a relative in the same genus.  Photos of the Cucumber Moth can be found on Oz Animals.
