Thank you Dominic Funnell for identifying this species for us

General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
~16mm long and ~37mm to ~43mm wingspan. Males have bipectinate antennae, while females have filiform.
We thought this was Hypobapta percomptaria.
The line at the front of the wing is in a slightly different place, and the scalloping on the trailing edge of the wings is not as deep here.
Dominic id'ed S6 for us, we extended that id to our other 5, including S3 here.
6 males were photographed in April & May.
