Putting on the light

On a warm summers evening it is well worth putting on a light outside and see what comes to it like this Netted Slug (Parapludaq invitabilis)
 They come in many shapes and colors. This is a Red-lined Emerald (Heterorachis devocata)
 This one reminds me of the old days when people used to throw a cape around their shoulders.
 Lacewings are attracted to the light as well but unfortunatly, so are the ants and they make a feast of them.

 I think this is one of the Concealer moths belonging to the Xyloryctidae family.
