General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
~7mm long, ~15mm wingspan. A small, typical crambid shaped moth.
The one we found was quite pale compared to some other on-line photo's. Basically brown with white lateral streaks.
We found one specimen in December (in a semi-arid region in drought, not sure about the 'pond' name?)
