Looper caterpillars are a familiar sight on plants everywhere. Most belong to the geometrid family of moths, of which carpets and waves make up about a third.

With 170 species and over 500 images, this book presents every known Victorian moth in these two groups for the first time.

Here is the essential reference for

  • Anyone seeking to identify the moths around their homes and countryside.
  • Naturalists, students and scientists.
  • Land Care and Friends groups.
  • Organisations working with the natural environment.

    The disk provides more than 300 additional pages with information, biology and distribution for each species.
