Emperor gum moth

Opodiphthera eucalypti, Emperor gum moth. Family: Saturniidae. This moth is found in the Northern Territory, from Mareeba to Paluma in northern Queensland, and from southern Queensland to Victoria. It was also introduced to New Zealand in about 1915 and is now established in several relatively isolated areas. The moths are well camouflaged amongst the young foliage of several species of Eucalyptus upon which they feed.
