Type locality. “S. Australia.”  

Specimens examined. The ♂ holotype ( BMNH); 1 ♀ ( CLBC): Queensland, Edungalba [ BBS, S23° 42' 50.6" E149° 51' 03.4"] GoogleMaps   , Jan. 1962.

Distribution. Australia, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia.

Biology/Bionomy. Mark Hanlon (in litt.) wrote: “ C. cerata   is found in sympatry with Pseudotaenia waterhousei   on The Round Hill, Round Hill Nature Reserve, NSW. Adults can be collected on the leaves of mallees ( Eucalyptus sp.   ) during December and January. Adult emergences appear to be dependant on the level of rainfall in the winter/ spring of the prior year.”

Remarks. While P. frenchi   was overlooked and kept in Chalcotaenia   by Obenberger (1926) and Carter (1929), C. cerata   was left in Pseudotaenia   even though Kerremans was the author of this species, the genus Pseudotaenia ( Kerremans 1903)   , and the last revisor of that genus ( Kerremans 1909).
