The ALA shows a sighting in South Australia, the rest are in Queensland (see Bold Systems 4).

Looking at Bold Systems 3, ALA and iNaturalist, I can't see any obvious distinction between this specimen and the more common C. Almella. What makes you think C. subfuscella?

I'm now not sure. I agree and think C, almella is more likely given its apparent southern Australian distribution compared to C. subfuscella (N. Queensalnd).
