Not certain (re Chaetolopha emporias). Has many characteristics of the male. White subapical spot not visible, but it as a variable species.

This specimen although I agree its similar to the males of C. emporias I can see online in general in its overall wing patterning on the forewing it lacks the white subapical spot, there's not much of a thin white band to the rear of the dark wing band and the hind wing has a broad band which is lacking in the specimens of both sexes shown in Part 3 og MoV which have plain hindwings. I thought at first it might be Chrysolarentia mecynata but I think not..

This is similar to Acodia pauper, and may be an Acodia species, but staying at subfamily level is safer. There is an interesting photo identified as Acodia sp in a recent Victorian Ento Society publication on the Lepidoptera and Neuroptera of Morwell National Park.

I'm reasonably confident to attribute it to Acodia sp
