Hestiochora tricolor (Forester Moth), Zygaenidae:Procridinae
   6 Jan 2018
It would be good to capture a specimen of this, as few ACT Hestichora specimens are available. Tarmann 2004 suggests tricolor is likely to be a Tas only species, and that there are several species in a complex that cannot be reliably distinguished by external characters only. The forewing on this apparently female specimen is very black and best matches Tarmann's illustration of H. furcate.
