General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA), the Adelaide Hills and elsewhere
Where do these live? We've been at Ellura for over 2 years now and never seen one. We don't have any standing water (damn, spring, etc). Suddenly after a day of gentle rain one of these just hopped in for a visit!
