Certainly looks like an Oxycanus sp. but I don’t think it’s O. dirempta. I’ll consult Glenn Cocking.

I’ve heard back from Glenn and he agrees that it’s unlikely to be Oxycanus dirempta, given the long rami on the antennae. He thinks it could be a colour morph of Oxycanus silvanus. The pale antennae and the overall wing colouration are similar to Oxycanus silvanus we’ve sighted down here in Wonboyn. So I’ll call it that.
