    We have a couple in this genus in Vic. I have this one from Mallacoota and I think Laura L has if from Upper Beaconsfield.

    Interesting Mark! Looks like this one could be closely related to my mystery micromoth ( http://www.bowerbird.org.au/observations/11203 ). Your moth is far more specky though!
