Some resemblance to Lacalma mniomima at

but that appears to be a Queensland species.

A Nolinae?

Many thanks for the advice! There are two images under Nola delograpta on the ALA (from Victor W Fazio III and Ian McMillan) that are a very good match for this one.

I think we must assume that your specimen is somewhat worn, but yes I agree there is a close similarity to the two images you refer to on the ALA for N. delograpta and I have not been able to find another species which would better match.

Update: I now believe this image to be of Nola tetralopha (not N. delograpta). Refer ALA image by Donald Hobern and BOLD Systems 3 and 4.

I think you may be correct so I have suggested N. tetralopha.
