Wow.... !? That looks nothing like it other than overall shape.

Euchaetis sp. possibly E. iozona
According to Peter Marriott.
That would be correct.

The best fit for mine is Garrha demotica although maybe not a perfect fit. http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.com.au...

An interesting observation possibly... every Vic record for garrha sp. on ALA is between Dec and Mar.
Also this one from a week ago has a nail through it's head too http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/677...

Yes it does. With 40 species in that genus, I might list it by genus only.
