I suspect this a different plume moth species than the two spp. already posted on CNM. I think it looks somewhat like Stenoptilia zophodactylus - a cosmopolitan species, but I can't really see any of the subtle markings which seem to be characteristic of that species

I agree it is different to the two plume moth species on CNM. It was smaller and finer in shape. It was hard to get a decent photo because of the small size.

Don H-E sent me a message:
Did you ask Donald Hobern about this one?
..
He knows the Pterophoridae of ACT rather well.

Donald Hobern said: This one is Stenoptilodes taprobanes. It is a rather slender long-winged species with angled forewing tips with darker markings, and with a rather plain abdomen. Exelastis (or Hepalastis) species are stubbier with more cigar-shaped abdomens. Stenoptilia zophodactylus is a little larger and with less cleanly cut-off forewings.
