Thank you Matthew Connors for identifying this species for us
General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA), and elsewhere
While we worked out the genus years ago, Matthew recently id'ed them to race He said "... Adelaide race. Oddly enough, about 1% of adults are fully-winged whereas the rest all have tiny wings like this." We've only seen flightless specimens.
