About 50mm length.
Face framed by a distinctive collar of white.
Probably attracted to night lights but found in a torpid state in daytime on the edge of a local national park. You can see how torpid in the last pic where I gently turned the moth on its back and it just stayed that way.
An uncommon moth with only two records so far on Atlas of Living Australia.
Normally known from northern Tasmania, Victoria and some parts of southern New South Wales.
Adults fly from mid-May to end August.
Lat: -37.89, Long: 145.31
