 Mimaglossa nauplialis

Mimaglossa nauplialis EPIPASCHIINAE PYRALIDAE 

As can be seen from the photo, the moth is about 18mm long so a wing span of about 30mm.
I was not able to find any thing of its biology.




Family:- PYRALIDAE
Sub Family:- EPIPASCHIINAE
Genus:- Mimaglossa
Species:- nauplialis

Ocrasa albidalis PYRALINAE PYRALIDAE

The larval food is the dead leaves of Eucalyptus trees, MYRTACEAE. The leaves are sometimes bound together with silk, with several larvae together in the space between. They skeletonising dead leaves, eating the surface of the leaf and leaving the veins.

Some of the adults have two strong horizontal lines on the fore wings and others have little or no markings.

They can also have a dark spot near the leading edge of the fore wing about half way along or a little further.
