Looks overall similar to C. correlata although the examples on CNM generally don't show the complexity of darker markings between the two main bands across the mid-forewing shown as in this specimen. For example those markings near the costa suggest C. polyxantha as they look similar to the only example of that species identified as such on the ALA. However the examples of C. polyxantha on Bold Systems 4 ate different again just showing a broad dark band across the mid forewing without much internal detail as seen above. In stark contrast, the photos of C. polyxantha on LBH are light coloured looking more like CNM's C. correlata images Therefore I'm inclined to group this with C. correlata unless consistent diagnostic features for C. polyxantha can be specified. We have already generally ruled out the also similar looking C. insulata for the ACT because there are no samples of that species in the ANIC from the ACT- see comments for Sighting No. 3387698
