General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee) & in the Adelaide Hills
These have now been placed in the Cockroach order Blattodea. However, I have them here with the ants to make it easy for people to find (given most people think they are a form of ant). It is, after all, a web site to help people find species they are not familiar with.
