Thank you Grant Schiermeyer for confirming the identification of this species
General Species Information:
Found in the Adelaide Hills and possibly elsewhere
Interestingly, Atlas only has 2 species described in this family and they are both introduced.
Notice the trapezoidal telson of this family mentioned by Grant above.
We think the colour variation is due to the specimen #4 recently moulting. Specimen #7 is the colour of an older specimen.
