First record of a female S plana on Mt Majura close to a site where males were observed 4 years earlier. Indicates possibly a viable breeding population.
I discovered this moth yesterday during weeding late afternoon; the moth was mainly walking and performed very short (about 10cm long) low dashes of "flight"; I collected it with my hands, brought it to near-by car and took above photographs using a book as background.
Several males of S. plana have been reported further north east (uphill) to this site. I will upload the photographs and details.
