About 20 mm long this moth had pale yellow wings with hints of copper. Wings were tented, giving the body a wedge shape. The head and thorax were almost white and the paleness continued along the costa. Feathery antennae stretched out and were almost two-thirds the body length.
Attracted to lights, this moth flew in from the garden.
Caterpillars feed on phyllodes of Wattle.
My thanks to Graeme Cocks for information leading to the ID.
