Description

The most stunning (native) moth I have seen - the photos don't do it justice. The forewings were a bright blue colour and when it took off it revealed the most brilliant orange hindwings with black stripes (just visible in the second photo).

Truly amazing. I cannot stop thinking about it and wonder if anyone knows what it is... I thought perhaps Paranotoreas?

It flitted off before I could get better photos.
