@nhudson following on from conversation here https://inaturalist.nz/observations/45678947 on moths with the W at the back of the wing, here's one I think is a new one for me. Is this Ichenutica sericata (female): https://www.landcareresearch.co.nz/__data/assets/image/0015/11184/graphania_sericata_f2.jpg ?

The most stunning (native) moth I have seen - the photos don't do it justice. The forewings were a bright blue colour and when it took off it revealed the most brilliant orange hindwings with black stripes (just visible in the second photo).

Truly amazing. I cannot stop thinking about it and wonder if anyone knows what it is... I thought perhaps Paranotoreas?

It flitted off before I could get better photos.
