Thank you Ethan Beaver for identifying this species for us
General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
We suspected this is the Leaf Case Moth (Hyalarcta huebneri), but weren't sure.
Ethan said "the pattern of the larva is different (to the other Lomera he id'ed) so I can't say for certain if they are different species or different ages". Since we found them in very different area's we have labelled as separate species, more for web site layout than any other reason.
