General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
Common names with moths can often be important descriptors. Here we thought this was Pointed Cape-moth (Amelora demistis). However, the wings aren't pointed, ruling that species out.
NB: none of the identifications on this web site have been determined scientifically (ie by dissection). They are based on visual clues, which can be very missleading with invertebrates.
