Thanks Alan,

The pattern was stronger than it appears in the photo (light was fading) having googled the two species I would lean towards C. corticalis but is there a defining feature that I may have observed but been unable to capture in the photo?

Hi Matt

Not that I'm aware of, although if it was found indoors I think it's more likely to be corticalis. For an ID I'd have to look at an adult under the microscope - though others may know of some pointers?

Wasn't indoors but in a bush

Wasn't indoors but in a bush by the side of the house. Thanks for your help - I'll have to catch another and have a closer look. :)
