An attractive moth about 1 cm long (wingspan 20 mm) with tented pearly white wings. Wings showed minute flecks of brown with larger spots along the costa near the copper-fringed trailing margin. An erect small brown tuft was visible on the thorax. A semi circular patch of brown could be seen along the inner margin, in the mid-section of the fore wings; these came together to form a rough circle when the wings were folded at rest.
Antennae were swept back on either side. labial palps were re-curved.
Spotted under bright garden lights.
Larvae of these moths feed on eucalyptus leaves. The larvae live in shelter made of leaves and frass held together by silk.
