Distribution Australia: South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales
Biology Moths emerge principally in March-April. Larvae subterranean, feed on outer tissues of roots of Eucalyptus camaldulensis (red river gum), probably within silk/soil lined tunnels with a canopy constructed around the root area being consumed (Kallies et al., 2015).
In suburban Adelaide the moths have no trouble flying between street lights despite the almost constant light pollution, with moths flying on crisp nights following rain after 11.00pm (Ethan Beaver, pers. comm.)
