Stigmodera macularia, PL0993F
Notes

Uncommon in SA and confined to the SE Region, apart from a single undated collection attributed to Adelaide, which seems dubious. The SA specimens tend to be smaller than normal for this species, possibly due to the more marginal habitat at the eastern limit of its distribution.
