I don't know the moth under the Emperor

As a moth moderator I think this is Austrocaligua helena Helana Gum Moth but I cannot add that new species to the taxonomy because I do not have that moderator priviledge as yet. The ability to do that would assist me in identifying new species as they appear.

Hi Ian - you should already have moderator status. I will try and get to the bottom of why you can't create taxonomy.

Hi Jen. As suggested by Michael B I logged out and in again which seems to have solved the creating taxonomy issue. Cheers, Ian B,
