General Species Information:
Found in the Adelaide Hills and possibly elsewhere
Head & body ~7mm, wingspan ~15mm. Very long antennae at ~16mm long.
As you can see this one is very deformed. We'd suggest the wings didn't form properly in the begining, rather than being crushed later, as they both appear to be very restricted at certain points. Due to it's poor condition, it's difficult to be sure of our id.
