Thank you Ethan Beaver for confirming the identification of this species

General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee)
Ethan Beaver suggests it might be one of 3 species: E. lituratus, E. leucomochla or E. encalypti, but without a live specimen it won't be possible to narrow it down further.
About 45mm long & 90mm wingspan.
