General Species Information:
Found in the Riverland and possibly elsewhere
Note the single pronged stinger.
We thought this was Isometroides angusticaudus. Erich lifted it to genus saying "The distribution of the SA 'I. angusticaudus' is ~1500km from the type locality in Qld. Without more evidence, I'm very sceptical about these being the same species."
We photographed 1 of these in Oct.
