Lily Moth

Polytela gloriosae

Description:

An explosion of colours.

Habitat:

Roof top terrace; on a flower.

Notes:

Before this, the caterpillars had ( still having) a field day decimating my lily plants. I do not mind because only the leaves are eaten and the underground lily bulbs send up new leaves in no time at all.

No species ID suggestions
