General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee) & in the Adelaide Hills
We suspect there are 3 species here. Unfortunately the photo's were taken before we realised we needed to get ventral (underneath) photo's. The eye's raised on a platform is not necessarily a diagnostic feature as once thought, nor is it gender specific. The genetalia is, but these images (photo equipement) are not able to magnify the genetalia to a sufficient size to inspect them.
