I think this is another Phytotrypa propriella. Both species are variable in pattern, but from what can be seen of the forewings here, it matches propriella. Most ANIC specimens of propriella are from Black Mountain, with a few more widely in central NSW. P. eurythrotenia specimens are from the east coast and GDR.

Good match with CSIRO Moths online image for P. propriella.
