- Spotted on the wall of my house. Usually, it can be found around the house (especially near the light sources).
- This is a moth from the Lymantriidae family. It can be confused with Euproctis lutea, that only can be found in northern Australia and New Guinea. This moth is attracted to the light (possibly a nocturnal insect). Thanks to Psyche (Dr. Seow) for the ID. - http://www.butterflycircle.com/showthrea....
