~4mm long male.

Notice the more trapezoid body, but it's hungry and I believe highlights the underlying body shape.

Mark, the reasons I've gone with this species are:

  1. Same location
  2. Exactly the same appearance (shapes, colour, legs, etc, to me), except for the depression & horn.
  3. Similar size, ~19mm

Marie also found a live male:

While similar in appearance to othe species, this is the most likely for our region; and is a good match visually.

A fraction over 5mm long Male, with a very narrow eye pedestal.

It is discussed they cover themselves with local debris for camouflage. While you can see sand on it here, the green is part of it's leg base colour.
Which is a strange colour for our environment.

Lets see if we can bat 2 for 2 ;-)

Again, not 100% sure on our id. It looks close to most other live shots.
And has the setae on the front tibia's.
Still small, ~7mm, a male, but closer in size.
It's abdomen is pock-marked a bit like a golf ball. But again, it's rounded rather than long.
The setae/scales covering the body & legs are quite amazing!

The eyes seem to be on a smaller pedestal compared to S. similis

I'm not 100% confident of my id, but seems to be the closest match. I need to mention she was quite dark, so had to post process the lighting and bump it up to the gazoo to see details.

She is small, only ~7mm. The abdomen is quite short, but it's difficult to know if she's just lain eggs, or is hungry. There are clear ripples on her abdomen indicating it's shrunk/smaller than it could be.

Note in the photo series the single large setae on the inside of her front femour; laying flat.

Also note the eyes are on a rectangular pedestal. Dame white thread photobombed the eyes!

Also interesting furrows on the outside of her legs; top to bottom. I've not seen that before.

I first found the following photo on Find-a-Spider Guide, which looked a reasonable match and quite different to the normal Stephanopis cambridgei, that has white lines on the carapace; which I think I have photographed.
http://www.findaspider.org.au/find/spiders/315.htm

Then looked for and found the description to see if the white lines were diagnostic.
https://journals.australian.museum/machado-2019-rec-aust-mus-716-217276/

I partly settled on this species as the front legs are so smooth compared to most Stephanopis sp.

It's found from WA & NSW. So clearly more widespread and sensible to be in SA. One assumes the coastal nature is associated with a higher human population looking/finding them.

Keen to hear other peoples views.

Don't confuse the moth scale contamination with cross veins on the wings; we don't think there are any cross veins, all longitudinal.

~16mm long and ~37mm wingspan.
Looking closely at the full desktop ventral image you can see that there are a few red scales along the edge of the black bar on the underside of the hindwing; consistent with H. percomptaria. Without the red suffusion on the underside of Hypobapta tachyhalotaria.

@kallies @vicfazio3
You'll be interested in this.

While the study from 2009 indicated none of the tested specimens from mainland Australia were H. percomptaria, it didn't discount the possibility. It also indicated the morphology of them was not overly variable.
However, I don't think it's possible to id to H. percomptaria without ventral view of the hindwings. Otherwise H. tachyhalotaria should be assumed.

Female Undescribed Black Striked Snout Moth (Symphyta MoV2)

This is very similar to Symphyta oxygramma. The only difference I can pick up is this has black pectinations on the antennae, vs S. oxygramma having brown.

S. oxygramma is known in WA & Broken Hill, NSW. So no reason it couldn't be here, nor NW Victoria.

Note the difference between the 2 profile shots. They are of the same specimen, just one is reversed. I always prepare photo's with the head to the left.
However, the side that is most "worn" also has a lot more black scales near the rear of the forewing than the other side. Possibly a strange wear pattern, or possibly asymetric.
This is also evident from the dorsal shot.

The middle leg pointing down is 17mm long!
The strange shaped eyes is due to condensation from being in the fridge.

As they are mating the iNat way of doing things is to post 2 obs, one for the male & one for the female.
