Thank you Ethan Beaver for confirming the identification of this species

EXTRA - Photo Specific Information:
Notice here how the antennae form cups when looking end on. It's not normally obvious.
General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee)
Head & body ~45mm, wingspan ~90mm.
Ethan 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.
