General Species Information:
Found in the Riverland and possibly elsewhere
There seems to be a few variations on Pernattia pusilla seen on-line. If the cheeks on this one were black dabbled we'd have gone with that. But I think there are too many differences. Still found in a She-oak area. ~30mm long
