Hi Guys,
found an ID for the plume moth, Alucita phricodes. Thanks for posting the picture. Last night had this visitor come into the house, a lacewing that mimics a moth, Psychopsis mimica. Hope you like it.
Queensland, Australia

Wow Trevor,
That is one awesome looking Lacewing. I am linking to another image of Psychopsis mimica, but there is no information on this unusual Lacewing on the page.

    Is it possible that this type of moth could be in South Australia? We have one in the house here which is very similar to your photo.

      i know it’s 4 years late but in case anyone else happens to wonder the same thing, this actually isn’t a species of moth. it’s a species of lacewing that has looks very much like a moth.
