An attractive moth with patches of rust brown and grey on the fore wings and narrow white wavy transverse bands that dipped down at the apices. Hind wings showed thin wavy brown lines and a broader white band near the trailing margin. The under side of the silky wings were pale. Wing span about 20 mm.
Spotted under bright garden lights.
At least five individuals found on the flowers of carrots that I have left to go to seed. The markings are quite variable, as is the particular shade of orange of each individual. Five photos uploaded.
Observation just at the border of Lerderderg State Park. Comment by Peter Marriott: the head pattern, the dotted line is sort of interrupted, the black mark suggests P. diemeni. Head close-up in second image. Pantydia fenus is profiled in Moths of Victoria Part 8.
This is an unnamed species of Psychidae which I initially matched to to "undetermined species A" on the Butterfly House site and Cathy then located on Australian Moths Online as "Unplacedtogenus xanthochrysa" - see second image
This is an unusual resting position for E. encalypti. There were so many bugs on the sheet that I think this elevated position is a defensive pose. At least it gave me a chance to get a good image of its head including palps. See second image.
