The page I was looking at didn't say it was, however when talking about flying little critters like moths, there's a lot of things to consider even if it isn't classified as Australian...

+ The winds as I understand it blow from East to West in the southern hemiphere (generally considering El Nino and Corellis Effect) so if they're South American, it doesn't take a great stretch of the imagination to say that they did some island hopping. We've got Galapagos, Philippines, Caroline Islands, Marshal Islands and so forth on the way. Looking at the wing to body ratio, it looks safe to assume they're good flyers (unlike diamondback moths) especially with the wind at their backs.

+ Next is adult moth shipping. Being that moths like dark places, it wouldn't be difficult for one of them to hide on a ship or airplane cargo area traveling across continents.

+ Then there's moth eggs, which if were on a plant, cardboard box, piece of tape, waxpaper, etc. that was transported could produce a hundred or so larvae to kick-off a population.

+ The page says they're not 'shy' by any means. It doesn't appear they flee from humans or fear daylight. That kind of aggressive expansion means it has a wider area of coverage. A good example of that are pigeons. They're everywhere in cities, most don't care you're there and are looking for you to toss some food. But, do you see goldfinches hanging out on the sidewalks? Not so much.

+ Finally there are soooo many species of moths, we're still trying to classify them all. Could be a distant cousin no one has heard of. What makes a species different from another? Well, with mammals it's fairly easy. Insects...not so much.

Determining a location is more important for larger animals than small ones. If you lived in the Amazon jungle and said you saw a bison, then I'd raise an eyebrow.

I'm not an entomologist, so I'd certainly welcome any correction from one. I merely work with them as bioreactors for protein synthesis.

I find that interesting, there are often times ive seen a moth or bug and thought, what the hell is that, i wonder if some scientist has categorized it or not.

from now on im going to document every bug i come across.:

There are jobs for it in science. Taxonomy, ecology, field studies, etc. and can be a lot of fun. The warmer the climate, the bigger the bug. This is usually because there's not an wintering effect from seasonal changes to kill them all off. They've got time to grow. The Costa Rica beetles weird me out.

Dear Sniffer,

Im not going to jduge anything you have posted yet, and im staying skeptical, but all the work youve done is slowly convincining me that something is going on here, just ignore all the people who post like 1 comment saying this is a hoax, just please try and get some solid evidence here, Then people might start sitting up and actually thinking about this topic.

it is clearly a costume mask on a hanger in the wardrobe you can plainly see other items of clothing and the sliding door.

plus if an alien creature did walk in the room very few people would pick up the phone turn on the cam change the setting to night vision then take it...

seen worse though...

Interesting... Although I can't say what I am seeing is anything other than a costume,

I think to get a real scope on the situation at hand, you would need to take a picture of every corner in your room, then post it onto here, and people would be able to analyse what you described!
