General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
~12mm long, ~26mm wingspan.
This is the first time we've seen white markings on the body, as well as the vertical white stripes on the face of a Fabriogenia. Mind you, they aren't obvious, but definitately missing on other specimens we've seen in this genus.
The top of the hind leg also seems to have a white patch/stripe.
We managed to catch this one only because it was injured. Found in October.
