Hello all

Maybe you can help oir at least point me in the right direction.

My father in law had a farm up at Mooketsi. (sometime spelt Moeketsi). Hot as blazes there but God's earth. I remember one year when we all went there, something terrible happened. And I cant even remember the time of the year but I think that it may have been mid-summer.

Anyway, lots of snakes and insects and other animals in that neck of the woods. And this particular time, there was a moth flying about which came in contact with some of us. And I was one of the people that made contact with one (maybe more) of these moths. And after that you develop a rash. But this rash is a bit like nothing else. It itches and burns and any time that you touch the affected area it just gets about 10X worse. And we just had to sit it out in misery.

Does anyone have an idea what that moth may have been?

Cheers - Ed
