Notes

Only known in SA from a single collection made in the Gawler Ranges by A.M. Sundholm in 2004. Images of that specimen are shown here. This is a remarkable outlier for a species that is otherwise only recorded from western Victoria. It is expected that it will eventually be found in the SE and MU Regions of SA also.
