INSECT FACTS

Identification
This moth is from the Pyraustinae subfamily. Not sure what species it is The moth is yellowish with indistinct wavy dark lines on the wings, a black spot on each wing, and two black spots on the abdomen. Looks a bit like one of the Notarcha or Psara species (although I have not seen references to the latter genus in Australia).

Size
wingspan 25mm
