General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
Here's an Australian gov' site: NSW DPI
The antennae are quite long and thin with these (you have to look closely at the 1st photo to see it). There are slight differences with above link and our photo's but this could be due to head tilt & dead vs alive specimens.
