A greyish white moth with brown flecks on wings, about 7mm long. Long sweeping antennae. Labial palps present but not seen in photo. Fore wings appeared to have "grooves" running towards the outer margins.
Common from southern Queensland to Tasmania. It is said to be adapted to rest on the bark of trees. This one was spotted sitting on the trunk of an Iron bark (eucalyptus) tree.
They are said to have squat pupae usually found under barks of eucalyptus trees. This moth's wing margins were damaged. Photo quality is poor -this is for records only.
