This is likely a Philobota sp. but I'm unsure as to species. P. baryptera seems close on appearance but that species apparently has a restricted northern NSW and southern Qld distribution. I have ruled out P. mucida and Acontholena. This specimen has a definite yellowish head colouration.

Black triangle on costa is consistent with P. mathematica, I think.
