Animal Species:Aedoea decreta (Butler, 1877)
Few identified specimens of this nondescript species can be found in collections, but there are probably many waiting to be identified.
This species has golden brown forewings and pale grey hindwings in the male, and predominantly grey females. Difficult to identify without detailed inspection of wing venation. It could easily be confused with species of Lambula in particular.
One other specimen in ANIC is from Ingham (QLD)
