Hello, I found this fluffy guy on my front porch in the Perth metropolitan area, Western Australia. It was found in April 2016. This was the only photo I managed before it flew away! I’ve been trying to find what kind of moth or family it belongs to since. The closest resemblance I can find is a Tiger Moth, what do you think? I would love to finally find out!
We agree with you that this is a Tiger Moth, but we have not had any luck identifying the species. None of the species pictured on Butterfly House resemble your moth, nor did we find it on the Brisbane Insect site. We will contact Tiger Moth expert Julian Donahue to see if he can provide an identification.
