Pindi moth

The Pindi moth (Abantiades latipennis) is endemic to Australia, where the larvae primarily feed on the roots of Eucalyptus trees. Female moths "lay" their eggs by scattering up to 10,000 of them during flight. Larvae then hatch in the leaf litter on the forest floor and begin tunnelling in search of suitable host roots.
