    Heliocausta
    (genus)
    Taxonomy: Animalia: Arthropoda: Insecta: Lepidoptera: Oecophoridae: Heliocausta
    Don Herbison-Evans says

    This looks like Common's fig. 501 in his "Wingia Group" book, p. 271, which he says is Heliocausta sp., and looks quite unlike fig. 500 which he identifies as H. oecophorella.

    No worries Adam, thank you for sharing your sightings. There is a Project on bowerbird, craneflies of Australia (http://www.bowerbird.org.au/projects/6402) if you could add this and any of your future cranefly sightings to the project it'd be fantastic to have them included. Thanks again.
