Thank you Ethan Yeoman for confirming the id of this species for us

General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
~3.5mm long, found desiccated. A female we think.
This id is based on location, the only species in the genus known to be found in SA.
However, it looks more like A. birdsvillei.
More work is needed to determine the true range of the different species of Abracadabrella.
