General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
About 9mm long & 22mm wingspan.
We found these very difficult to differentiate with other Double-spot moths, so many lines to compare.
One difference that stands out with this species vs the other Epicyrtica we've published is their very hairy look around the legs.
We found 2 on one night in April this year.
