General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee), and elsewhere
About 11mm long. We thought this was Anthrax torulus, as the wing patterns were a match, but Tony said "While wing markings here are very similar to that species, the abdomen dorsally is said to have no white hairs/scales beyond the first visible tergite."
