Deuterarcha sp. aff. xanthomela Meyrick, 1884 (Crambidae, Spilomelinae). The background colour on forewings is dark brown not black as described for D. xanthomela and the bright golden patterns are sufficiently different to consider this may be a different species in an otherwise monotypic endemic Australian genus.
