Lots of lepidoptera

Lepidoptera is an order of insects including butterflies and moth. Post the drought and bushfires in our part of Queensland, there have been lots of lepidopterans. One afternoon in April, Pete spotted 14 species on our property. Not to mention those that wouldn’t be still for identification!

Here is one of our favourties – common epicoma moth. Can’t help thinking it is Donald Trump, but beautiful!

  2. I was surprised by the amount of butterflies everywhere too. Many got run over on the roads, but I was pleasantly surprised by their diversity and numbers.
