@WendyEM I don't think the markings match Sciaphila debiliana

see https://bold-au.hobern.net/specimens.php?taxid=364845 dark strip on termen, 2 triangular shaped marks (postmedial, subterminal) on costa, middle of medial line oblong shape outlined on 2 sides on your moth, varyingly on 3-sides on BOLD, the medial line is thinner on costal half thicker for the half, some indication of antimedial line, dark marks on costa antimedially, dark head and shoulders, similar shaped head and palps.
Your moth is striking. It may be a new species, but it shares many features with the specimens on BOLD

Well spotted! It is very convincing - the CSIRO pinned specimen & Don's has the thin line from the postmedial triangle over to the termiinal area. Only major difference is the black head + 'neck' on this specimen. I saw a shot of a white head+ Little Raven on NM the other day so ....
