@Arks -
Toko is not present on the forum for the time being and I do not know when she'll be back. Maybe someone else will be able to assist you -O-

Sorry, just saw this now.

I fixed the links in your posts. To make sure the links work, you'll need to have the "http://sagr.co.za/forum/" in front of the "viewtopic..."
It doesn't show once you have submitted your post though.

0/* arks,

The first is a lacewing, don't know the genus/species.

My best guess for the 2nd/3rd is a Bee Fly, Family Bombyliidae, perhaps Bombomyia discoidea (link below for photos):

Can anyone help with an ID for these two moths? Not good photos, but the best that I could manage. Seen at/in my rondavel at Olifants in mid-April 2016.

0/* arks,

The first one is a Cream-striped Owl Moth (Cyligramma latona) Family Noctuidae

http://www.sagr.co.za/forum/viewtopic.p ... 45#p231645

The second one I don't know without further research, but I strongly suspect it, too, is a member of the Family Noctuidae (the largest and most successful family of moths in the world).
