That looks similar to Luke's at

You will note that in
http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.com.au/psyc/psyc-cases.html
we only have illustrations of cases from 13 out of the 25 named genera of Psychidae in Australia.
So there is no way to guess which genus this belongs to.
The only hope is to rear it to an adult moth.

Thanks Don. I thought this one was too young to try to raise to adulthood.
