Thank you Otto Bell for confirming the id of this species for us
General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
While it did occasionally have it's snout protruding, as soon as I turned the light on, or it saw motion, it tucked it up, so couldn't get a shot of it.
Otto said "Nice find. One of the true Decilaus, maybe D. variegatus although can't be sure."
