Golden Monkey Face Moth
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Dear TN members,|
This Brown Ring Epicoma Moth shot was taken at Mount Coot-tha Brisbane.
At first, I was just trying to shoot different angles and I only realize that this top angle show the monkey face.
The adult moths in this family are from medium to large size, with stout body. The head, thorax and legs are often covered with long hair. The fore wing is usually elongated-triangular form. The hind wing is round and much shorter than the fore wing. They rest their fore wings folded roof-wise above the abdomen, with fore wings cover entirely the hind wings. They are active at night.
