Drawn to bright garden lights - outer suburbs near the Dandenong Ranges
Larvae feed on Eucalyptus and Angophora leaves.
They feed on the underside of the leaf in a frass covered silky shelter. When ready to pupate they attach themselves to the upper side of a leaf or twig by their tail and pupate in a tower-shaped pupa without a protective cocoon.
