Zodiac moth (Alcides zodiaca)

The zodiac moth (Alcides zodiaca) is readily confused as a butterfly because of its lovely strong bands of tan and mauve that diagonally cross its black wings. This colour is necessary because the zodiac moth is a day-flying moth. Commonly seen around Cairns and the Atherton Tableland, the zodiac moth's food plants are the toywood tree (Endospermum medullosum) and the day moth vine (Omphalea queenslandiae).
