Plush moth about 28mm across wings back. A line of dark spots near outer margin. Dark areas on costa near base. Deep orange-red colour particularly near head and thorax. Antennae highly plumose black on white. "Pterolocera rubescens is a possibility but work needs to be done to determine the Victorian species (of which there are three as yet un-named)" - thanks Peter Marriott
Clusters of small, warty pinkish-orange blobs measuring about 8mm. On touching one it felt very soft and broke open easily releasing an orange, thick fluid.
Two specimens were found; one o a pine log and one on a eucalyptus log with bark. Both were within 50 metres of each other in a local nature reserve.
A strange looking stub moth about 32mm long. This group do a good job of imitating a broken twig.
In a local nature reserve adjoining a large, eucalyptus dominated national park.
Six Oenosandridae species in Victoria.
This one matches Peter Marriott's undescribed 'Discophlebia sp.' (1) in 'Moths of Victoria' part 2.
