General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
A fraction over 5mm long Male, with a very narrow eye pedestal.
It is discussed they cover themselves with local debris for camouflage. While you can see sand on it here, the green is part of it's leg base colour. Which is a strange colour for our environment.
We photographed 3 males in Feb & Mar.
