I found another caterpillar today. This one is leaving its run a bit late in the season but it should pupate sucessfully shortly.

Note: There appears to be a move to reclassify this moth with some thinking it should be placed in the subfamily, Catocalinae. Until there is something definite, I will leave it where it is! :-)

Thanks for your comments, rhubsknit. I'll certainly have a look at your site. I've been flat out transferring my work so sorry if I didn't give you a fair go.

Australian taxonomists work pretty slowly so it could be years before there's any reclassification! :-)
