Synemon collecta

The Striated Sun-moth (Synemon collecta) is a moth in the Castniidae family. It is found in Australia, including Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.[2] The population in Victoria might represent an undescribed allied species.

The wingspan is about 39 mm for males and 41 mm for females. Adults have brown forewings and bright yellow hindwings. The common name refers to the whitish striations and markings found on the upperside of the forewings.

Adults are on wing from late December to mid January.

The larvae feed on the roots of various grass species, including Austrodanthonia laevis and other Austrodanthonia species.[3] They spend most of their life underground.
