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.

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:
