    Martin Lagerwey says

    Dicranosterna semipunctata is one of two common Victorian Dicranosterna usually feeding on phyllodes acacia. The other is immaculata usually on bipinnate acacia. Each has globose larvae. The adult is honey-brown and occurs along the east coast, possibly being a similar but different species. further north. I see the larvae very occasionally.
