Photo date is "October 2000". Undescribed Notoreas from the south Wairarapa Coast. Host Pimelea cf urvilleana as it was called then. Habitat was damaged by motor bikes and wintering cattle and I had some hectares fenced off to prevent damage (while working for DOC Wairarapa Office). Unsure about the current status of the protected area. When I visited the site last, in approx. 2010 an exotic annual grass was invading the area(hare grass?) establishing in the Pimelea cushions.

@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.
