Thank you Matthew Connors for identifying and Ethan Beaver for confirming the id of this species for us
General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
We thought this was Orthodera gracilis, but Matthew said "Orthodera are an utter mess at the moment". He & Ethan Beaver, another expert who has helped us out tremendously, are working on a paper at the moment to try and resolve the genus.
