General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA), and elsewhere
Looks closest to Miltinus cardinalis but not confident to even put it to genus as this stage. There aren't many live specimens to compare against.
Tony D just identified it as Miltinus cardinalis, many thanks Tony
