Local Long-tailed Satin Trichiocercus sparshalli

(Curtis, 1830)


Adventive.

Unlikely to have occurred here by natural causes, this Australian species has just one record in the literature, of one taken in Norfolk in 1829.

Like many other adventive species, it is likely that the record refers to an individual accidentally brought here.

It is a member of the "Processionary" group of moths, whose larvae follow one another nose to tail across the ground.
