Distinguishing features

Distinguishing features still need to be specified.


  • Size data has not been obtained.



The record of this species by Dinesen (1980) is the only one known from the Lizard Island area (other records only from central GBR in ALA accessed 17 Apr 2020). Identification of the Lizard Island material is thus questionable.
