This small silky peach-coloured moth had a large irregularly shaped black patch in the middle of each fore wing. Small black specks were sen along the trailing margin and the sub-marginal border. Thorax was also a sooty black. Wing span was about 15 mm.
Spotted under bright lights in suburban garden. Plenty of native trees around.
