Username 239 Did you take all the photos on the same night? If so, I think the last two are more likely to be Aenetus scotti. Not sure about the third photo because I can't fully see the hindwing pattern. If they were taken on different nights then please separate them and only submit photos from one night for one record when you are taking mutliple photos of the same moth.
