General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
According to Don Herbison-Evans, the wingspan of these is about 15mm where as the very similar Philobota ancylotoxa has a wingspan of about 25mm.
These look quite dull, without any glossy/satiny sheen.
Given the flyscreen is ~1.25mm, this is much closer to the 15mm wingspan.
We found these in September & November.
