Golden Sun Moth  - Critically endangered in Victoria

The Golden Sun Moth is found in grassland habitat, including native grasslands, grassy woodlands and grasslands.  It has a flight period of only a few days and is found to be most active on sunny, still, warm-hot days (mostly mid-November to mid-December). After mating the female lays eggs and the adult moths die.
