Perhaps Epithymema incomposita is dimorphic, and the photos at

Yes: the complete brown costal and sub-hind-margin streaks, and white thorax are a puzzle. So close to Epithymema incomposita and yet so far.

There are 5 records of O. hyperocha on the ALA all from the southern ACT at altitude which seem to match the locality where this record came from.
