This moth is common in Brisbane bush. These moths have the orange hairs on the forewings base. The orange spots on its wings are not semi-translucent. The moths have bright warning colour patterns, which are spotted in orange on black. Their stout abdomen striped with black and yellow-red colour. The stripes also give rise to their name "Tiger Moths".
Found around Brisbane area in Eucalyptus forests.
I have seen these around the garden in Caloundra but couldn't identify them until today. They are really brightly coloured.
