    Ken Walker says

    ID by Axel Kallies who said: "this looks like Piestoceros conjunctella, currently assigned to Psychidae, which is most definitely wrong. A very exciting find! Not much is known about the genus. It may well be a different species and is certainly a first to Victoria." Only one record on ALA and it is from the BOLD Genbank so has no locality data. Very exciting.
