    The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or one.

    I'm not sure but i think the last metallic moth may be from the Eriocraniidae, one of the most primitive moths.
    I suspect so coz of the slightly mandibulate mouthparts but the antennae dun rly tally and i'm also not sure if they occur in our region.

    Thanks Anthony for the possible ID.

    Aaron, the metallic moth is quite common at SBWR, the size is ~ 1cm.

    middle one looks like Metaemene atriguttata (Noctuidea, Aventiinae)

    bottom one is a Saptha species (Choreutidae), possibly Saptha beryllitis (check out the banner at http://lepidopterology.blogspot.com/ )

    cheers, Roger.
