Reddish moth

Nightcap National Park NSW Australia

Had this moth sensibly landed amongst the leaf litter on the forest floor I almost certainly would not have noticed it. Even the high
contrast between the moth and the fern was camouflaged by the fact that it looked so much like the gum leaves that were lying
about that only its shape gave it away. This moth would probably be good to eat, although I didn't eat it, as I was in a national park,
and I had just eaten.
