Zodiac Moth (Alcides zodiaca)
    • This is a large and attractive moth and in many ways resembles a swallow tail butterfly.
    • It is a diurnal moth (meaning that it is active during the day), as is flits around the rainforest or sips nectar from flowers with its long proboscis.
    • It can be recognised as a moth because it rests with its wings outspread, unlike butterflies which rest with wings together most of the time.
    • The larvae of this moth feed mainly on Omphalea queenslandiae and pupate in transparent cocoons between dead leaves on the ground or in crevices.
