This was a slow flying damselfly. It was the first individual I've observed at this location (4 years). "Neurobasis australis occurs in lotic waters. Australasian Neurobasis species are found amongst gravel and rocks in clear, fast flowing creeks, streams and rivers, mostly within forested areas. Nymphs are predators. Australasian Neurobasis males are territorial and defend potential oviposition sites. Females usually lay their eggs on submerged floating root mats or plants, usually at a depth of 5-15 cm below the water surface." http://www.mdfrc.org.au/bugguide/display...
