User's notes

Possibly Capusa cucilloides? The first and second images show a tiny winged insect at rest on the caterpillar, above the gap between the second and third pairs of legs. When disturbed, the caterpillar planted its head into the wattle sprig, prominently displaying the stripe and the spots on either side of its head.
