General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee)
We thought this was Amelora nebulosa, but Marilyn indicates it's not an Amelora due to the thorasic crest. Most likely a Fisera sp, but she doesn't recognise it.
Marilyn also said A. nebulosa is a mountain species, and that the way it's holding it's wings is indicitive of Fisera as well.
