Description

A fawn-coloured Cossid about 40 mm long, No distinct patterns on wings but darker along the veins. Antennae were brown and feathery. Thorax had a faint dark inverted "V" shape.
Spotted under bright lights near a national park.
I believe this is an Endoxyla moth. My thanks to peter Marriott for confirming the genus.

  1. Cathy Powers  Leuba - Peter Marriott says it is an Endoxyla sp. with most of these with no name. Moths of Victoria volume 10 should assist but that is a work in progress.
