Author's notes

Perhaps around 25mm. Appeared on a tree trunk where a skink was foraging (see sighting 3873330) Was attacked by the skink, but appeared to fight back, and jumped over the skink, and off the tree trunk.

My images are not nearly as clear as sighting 3877560, but I think this may be the same (or close) species/genus (Chlenias), A looper moth.
