    1. Cathy Powers  This is Hednota xiphosema which I have confirmed with Peter Marriott. Great observation - the holotype was collected at Macedon and this will be the first observation on ALA. I will add the species to the dataset.

    2. David Francis  Thanks Cathy, that's marvellous. If I'm not careful I'll be bitten by the "moth bug" too! I'll add the new species if you like.
