Critter of the Week: Kiwaia moth

From the collecton Critter of the Week

This week's critter is a tiny jumping moth. The flightless and dusty-looking Kiwaia "Cloudy Bay" moth only lives on one type of mat daisy (Raoulia australis) in a few areas of north-eastern Marlborough. Local DOC staff and farmers are working hard to protect this critically endangered critter.
