We found this moth on Apr 2008 in Mt Tamborine while we were looking for the Mountain Katydid. It has two dark brown triangles on each forewing. This moth usually found resting on ground hiding among grasses.

Found the moth second time in Plunkett Conservation Park. It was a rainy day on May 2011. The moth was quite confident on its camouflage colours. It did not move a bit even we came very close.
