The Golden Sun Moth is a threatened species that occurs in south-east Australia. In Bangerang language it is called Yurrnga Ganbina. It has unique colouration and the sexes can be distinguished by their wing colours with only the females having the characteristic golden hindwings. The habitat of the Golden Sun Moth includes native temperate grasslands, which were made and maintained by Aboriginal people over countless generations. Less than one per cent of these grasslands remain and as a result populations of the Golden Sun Moth are highly reduced and fragmented.
