General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
Body & head are only ~4mm.
Often surprises us we find water born insects on Ellura given we don't have any standing water & it's semi-arid. But they keep turning up, to our wonder & enjoyment

These look a lot like brown lacewings. Superficially the long palps separate them out.
