 This moth is found in India, Indonesia, New Guinea, New Caledonia, Northern Territory, eastern Queensland, Brisbane and Toowoomba.
The larval food plant is thought to be Diospyros species, EBENACEAE. Here it would most likely be our Persimmon tree, although we do have a small native Ebony.
Wing span about 40mm.
