The Lurcher from Australia, we think

What Butterfly is this?
We live in Daisy Hill, Queensland. The attached photo is of a butterfly (?) who decided to come into the house just on dusk to stay the night. Perhaps to escape the cold. Any help you can give with identification would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi Glenys-Julie,
At one point, we located an image online of The Lurcher, Yoma sabina, but our browser crashed and we lost it. We have located another page with images of The Lurcher, and we believe this is your butterfly. A link from there led to many photos. There are many open winged views online, but few that show the leaf pattern camouflage.
