About 10 mm long, this glossy white moth had black wing bases and a dark patch at the tornus of each fore wing. Running across the middle of both wings was a narrow smudged brown band.
Spotted under bright lights near a sports field.
My thanks to Peter Marriott for the ID. He however has some concerns: "OECOPHORINAE: Chezala Group. This is very close to C. brachypepla which is recorded reasonably often in this part of Vic. The part where I have a small concern is the amount of black on the inner wingtip (tornus)." My references both show black patch at the tornus http://www.boldsystems.org/index.php/Tax...
