Sorry Steff ... just realised that this is actually the 'Giant Torbia' ... nice find! The purple patch on the side of the thorax is distinctive, as is the large size and the long lateral lobes of the pronotum. It helped that last night, at a moth light, we saw several of these (for the first time!)
