This geometrid moth was mostly brown with thin grey wavy patterns on the both wings and a broader grey pattern along the outer margin that forms a "y" shape at the costa. Visible here are two small black spots on the fore wings. Each hind wing also has a similar spot but not seen here. The hind wings appeared to have a pale tinge of pink and a peppering of (dark) spots closer to the base. Antennae - feathery suggesting that this is a male Spotting of a darker version in March 2013 http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/194...
This is the paler version of a male (similar to the one on Brisbaneinsects - web link). I have called it "reddish wave" for consistency with 2 other spottings on PN http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/184... http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/176... This is a geometrid from subfamily Sterrhinae
