The immature stages of Telicota brachydesma Lower are described from northern Queensland (Iron Range National Park, Cape York Peninsula). The larval food plant is confirmed as Leptaspis banksii (Poaceae), which has a restricted distribution within rainforest. We comment on the apparent rarity of this species in collections and include characteristics to assist in its identification.
