Thank you Suzie & Jim for confirming the identification of this species

General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere

It decided to "hide" by wrapping around the edge of the pot we caught it in

This one seemed to have very large posterior median eyes (middle, top row)
