ground during the day time. The moth is brown in
colour with a pinkish-brown band across each forewing. Under the band there is
a line of black dots.

- In later winter, we found this caterpillar on a tall grass in Wishart
bushland. We collected it home with some grasses. One day later, it pupated on
a grass leaf. Two week later it become a brown moth.
