Anyone know the names of these lovely creatures, please?
Photos 3 & 4 maybe the same insect.
CLOSED: Re: Moth & insect ID's
The first image is a moth in the family Geometridae, it looks like a cabbage tree moth - http://sciblogs.co.nz/the-atavism/tag/epiphryne-verriculata/
The second moth appears to be in the family Pyralidae.
The third image appears to be a hover fly (family Syrphidae) - http://www.landcareresearch.co.nz/science/plants-animals-fungi/plants/pollination/pollinator-profiles/diptera-syrphidae
The fourth image could be a soldier fly (family Stratiomyidae) - http://www.terrain.net.nz/friends-of-te-henui-group/local-flies/garden-soldier-fly.html
Just checked on my ID's that have been solved...so
Thank you for your time and help.
