Notographus sp. Golden vittae  Distinctive features

An elongate body shape with weakly delineated shiny green-gold curved vittae in a pattern reminiscent of the indented vittae of Notographus sulcipennis and N. sulcipennis.


This species appears to be allied to Notographus hieroglyphicus and N. yorkensis. It is represented in SA by five specimens collected in a vehicle net from three different transects. As the species occurs in the western part of the NW Region, it is likely to be present in WA also.
