Any chance of rearing some in captivity to get the adult moth?

Larvae look similar to younger O. vinaria larvae, but references usulally indicate that O. vinaria larvae are usually found on Proteace a (e.g. Banksia, Hakea etc.)

Lomatia myricoides is in Proteaceae. I suspect that they strayed onto the Baeckea utilis (Myrtaceae) out of desperation.
