Unknown Cosmopterigid Moth


A 10 mm long moth with purplish grey silky wings tented over the body. Bursts of white scales could be seen in transverse bands across the wings. Long labial palps were recurved. Legs were banded.


Spotted on a broad leaf wattle tree in a park.


Have not found an ID yet.
My thanks to Darren Carman for pointing me in the right direction for an ID. Possibly Macrobathra sp. Family: Cosmopterigidae
