    Thanks to further research by Peter Hendry, Saroba albopunctata and Saroba niphomacula are closely related species and Saroba niphomacula is the species found in Australia.

    Geometridae

    Frank Pierce says

    Refer to http://www.bowerbird.org.au/observations/122447. This was ID'd from MoV7. I then checked ala and found this record with a very different underside pattern but with the upperside pattern that was similar but with a few differences. I referred this to Marilyn Hewish, the main author of MoV7, who confirmed that this is not Thallogama destinataria. Marilyn could not ID this as there are many Boarmiini in Qld that don't occur in Vic and so are outside the scope of her research.
