I would agree because it is faded a little

@ornithoptera80 : thanks for the suggestion... but i think i would stay at the genus level for now as the moth is rather on the worn side as it was a dead specimen... thus making a positive species ID difficult.!

It might be Hemithea tritonaria, because on inaturalist They are multiple spottings of them on Frasers hill.
