Critter of the Week, the lichen tuft moth

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:39 pm on 22 July 2016

Today Mike Dickison, Curator of Natural History at Whanganui Regional Museum is with us to talk about the lichen tuft moth, which was only rediscovered this year after 30 years.

It's one of a family of NZ moths named lichen tuft moths because some of them look like a bit of lichen - though not this one.
