User's notes

Larva in a short twig eating eucalyptus. Black head with a pale pink/cream ring around it’s neck, then progressively patchier black bands which end between the first 2 pairs of legs. The rest is the pink/cream. The rest end might be black?

Good to find a live larva. Hope you can rear it to the adult moth to determine its species.
