General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
It looks a lot like Inopus rubriceps but, apart from being in the wrong location, it's face/head is also the wrong shape. According to Nagatomi and Yukawa's paper, the top & bottom of the head are concave (Fig M, page 526). In our specimen here you can see the bottom of the head is flat.
