Three Queensland Moths

I'd be grateful if someone could put a name to these three please. All in the Outback.

First looks like a Footman or relative of, Delia.

I'd say the last is one of these

Thanks Andy. The first one, I can see where you're coming from with Footman, but when I checked them in Queensland, they all seem to be brown LOL??

Gawd... I'm struggling to work out what the differences are between both the ones you linked to... and they both look like my one!!!

Here's another moth... a really tiny one, that I found in the Mount Nimmo area of the Gold Coast.

It had purplish wings, which don't show too clearly I'm afraid.

I think that with those antennae your last one must be a butterfly (probably a Lycaenid) - perhaps with badly formed wings.

I think it must be a case of misidentified photos on the web.

There are certainly two different species figured - but sometimes with the same name. It seems to match one photo of Dasypodia cymatodes Guenée, 1852 on here (http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.co...cymatodes.html). To know
if this was correct, you would need to examone the type specimens, which are in the Natural History Museum, London.

Oh of course.... ball on antennae = butterfly. Wondering if that applies to my first picture too (can't see too clearly).

Thanks Martin
