Thank you David J. Ferguson for identifying this species for us
General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
~14mm long. Has very short, scattered hair on the green eyes.
We thought this was a female D. circumdata; complimenting our male.
But David said "Femora yellow brown and scutellum is with a pale posterior margin."
You can clearly see these differences when comparing to the male above.
