This tiny moth, only 1cm long, appeared after a period of heavy rain in Broome in late January 2014.   Moths belong to the order ‘Lepidoptera’ which means scaly wing, and are generally less colourful than butterflies, with no hooks at the end of the antennae.  They are nocturnal, and rest with the wings folded flat, rather than vertically as for butterflies.
