Taurapa Station. Pitfall trap in old manuka/kanuka fragment. 6 Dec-7 Jan 2019.

Oddly, this species appears to lack functional hind wings. This specimen is a male, so both sexes appear to lack functional hind wings. Photo 2 shows the aedeagus.

Taurapa Station. Pitfall trap in planted manuka/rank grass. 6 Dec-7 Jan 2019.

The bottom right quarter of the photo shows the spermatheca. Oddly, this species appears to lack functional hind wings, although there was a second specimen in the same sample which was larger and did have obvious hindwings (different species?)
