Tasmanian Red-lined Looper Moth, Crypsiphona tasmanica
Until recently, the Tasmanian red-lined looper moths were thought to be the same species as that found on the Australian mainland, ie C. ocultaria. The Tasmanian species is said to be darker dorsally, and on the underside of the hind wing the submarginal black band truly dominates over the inner red line. In C. ocultaria the black and red lines are somewhat equal in width throughout.

This form appears light grey dorsally and is close to C. ocultaria, though the underside of the hind wings shows the submarginal black band dominates over the inner red line (see last pic).
