The curious case of the calytrix and the case moths

One shrub in my garden, only one of many, is covered in case moths. It's a Calytix tetragona that was covered in a mass of pink flowers several weeks ago. Now I'm wondering if the moths have been there a while or just arrived. And I'm wondering what it is about this particular plant species that they like.
