Trying very hard not to be noticed on Allocasuarina ?verticillata
I wasn't even sure this wasn't a bifurcated she-oak 'leaf'.
Approx 18mm long
The trees were planted as a border to a local sports field.
Fantastic camouflage and the behaviour was also appropriate being a typical loop shape while feeding but immediately going rigid when alarmed.
The moth is fairly uninteresting by comparison
The common name is a mystery and seems inapt.
Lat: -37.90, Long: 145.24
