Australian Tiger Moths #2

Ceryx sphenodes: The adult of this species is black with transparent "windows" in the wings and has a black and yellow abdomen. It has a wingspan of about 2 cms. The hind wings are only about half the span of the forewings. The adult moths of the species in the genius Ceryx are similar to those of the closely related Amata but the hind wings lack some of the veins present in the hindwings of Amata species, such as Amata nigriceps.

And that's all I could find about this moth. The info came from here.
