Distribution ( Fig. 32 View Figure 32 ). New South Wales along the Great Dividing Range south from Ebor (1,500 m altitude) almost to the Victorian border around Cooma (780 m) and Bombala (680 m), and subcoastal districts between Port Macquarie and Sydney. It is a common species on the sandstone ridges around Sydney. Adults have been taken from October to January.

Habitat. Dry sclerophyll forest or open woodland, often growing on a sandstone substrate and with a heath-like understory. Adults prefer the trunks and larger limbs of Eucalyptus   or Angophora   where they usually settle on dark surfaces where they are well camouflaged.
