Hema, I've actually changed my ID suggestion. What I thought was a Black-headed Wasp Moth (Common Wasp Moth) - Eressa angustipenna is actually a White Antenna Wasp Moth - Amata nigriceps. They looks almost identical with the exception of the antenna, the later of which has a white tip. Here are two reference links for you to compare... http://www.brisbaneinsects.com/brisbane_... https://www.brisbaneinsects.com/brisbane...
