A Few Recent Inverts

Herewith a few invertebrate species of late:-

Boisduvals Autumn Moth, Oenosandra boisduvallii

Found in our garden at Drouin. Prefers eucalyptus habitat seemingly and that figures considering our location.
Thanks to DF for the ID, (check out his new Gippsland Mothing blog).

Heliotrope Moth, Utetheisa pulchelloides

A widespread species that enjoys garden heliotrope plants and Patterson’s Curse.

Meadow Argus, Junonia villida

This example was seen only recently in Wuchatsch Reserve at Nyora. Very late in the season.

Tent Weaver, Cyrtophora hirta (probably?)

I found this one in Bunyip State Park back in March. Not easy to see in this image, but I watched it for some time wrapping its prey in silk.
