I'll suggest Epidesmia tryxaria, but will wait to see what Glenn Cocking (our expert moth moderator) suggests

I didn't see E. tryxaria Friday night but that doesn't mean it wasn't there. There were many of the orange hindwinged E. chilonaria. The upperwing looks to me a little more like chilonaria than tryxaria, but the photo is blurred.

Thanks Glenn - let's go with chilonaria. This was actually collected during the day yesterday at Panboola, with a sweep net through the grass.

I'm sorry, I missed the location info and assumed it was a Friday nighter. Please put it back to tryxaria.
