A small banded moth with flared upturned tail. About 18mm long.
Exploring various plants in a local nature reserve.
Macrobathra euryleuca is only known in Qld and NSW? M desmotoma has been suggested by Marilyn Hewish http://bie.ala.org.au/species/Macrobathr... http://www.boldsystems.org/index.php/Tax...
Thanks for that suggestion Yaniv and Sarit. Very impressive to go that far with our tiny moths! I will go with genus for the moment as the species you named has not been recorded in southern Australia but I agree it looks right.
