Plume Moth from Australia

Brightly colored Plume Moth

Hi guys. I thought brightly coloured ones might be rare. I got a photo of one from Australia that  is brightly russet coloured. It is the only known photo of a living specimen of a very rare species, it took the experts weeks to figure out what it was, and is on the Atlas of Living Australia website here. Feel free to grab it for your archive if you wish.
