Thank you Tony Daley & Dr Chris Lambkin for helping with the id of this species for us

General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
~7mm long. We thought this might be Oncodosia sp, but Chris said "I have my doubts about this one being Oncodosia. Venation indicates Lomatiinae, R2+3 going all the way back, not joining R4+5 in right angle near r-m."
