Thank you Dr Anna A Namyatova for confirming and Cynthia Chan for helping with the id of this species for us

General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
~6.5mm long.
Cynthia suggested is may be Rayieria frontalis, and asked for Anna's confirmation.
Anna (who described Australia's Rayieria) said it was too shiny, so an undescribed species.
