Thank you Dr Shaun Winterton for identifying this species for us
General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
1st Live Photo's on-line: We thought this was a Nanexila sp.
After Shaun id'ed it for us, we looked at his paper and found different genders of the same species can be different colours. So have changed our id's of the other Therevids here until we have time to review them against his paper.
