General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
Of those we've measured, they are ~5mm long but ~8mm wide.
The eye's raised on a platform is not necessarily a diagnostic feature as once thought, nor is it gender specific. The genetalia is, but these images (photo equipement) are not able to magnify the genetalia to a sufficient size to inspect them.
