Thanks Lori, looks like there are plenty of other Aoplocnemis species in Victoria though - shame there are no pictures to compare with.

According to the Atlas of Living Australia, they are only recorded in Tasmania. http://bie.ala.org.au/species/urn:lsid:c...

Hey Lori, do you know if this one is also found in Victoria? I can't find much info on them but this looks very similar to one of my spottings I've been trying to ID: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/158...
