This species was described from Warburton, north of Melbourne, on a series of specimens collected from galls on Cassinia aculeata ( Asteraceae ), but the only other Australian specimens known are two females collected in Tasmania, Lake St Claire, in March 2004. The species was recorded and re-described from New Zealand ( Mound & Walker, 1986) on “ Cassinia vauvilliersei ”, a plant species currently considered to be a member of the genus Ozothamnus . Females have very weak cheek setae, although these are stout in males. It differs from both K. myopori and K. walsinghami in having the mid and hind tarsi dark, not yellow, and it also has the setae on tergite IX pointed to bluntly rounded, not expanded at the apex. In the colour of the tarsi, K. annulosus is similar to the new species, K. oleariae , described below. However, K. annulosus is distinguished by the unusually elongate maxillary stylets, these being retracted to the eyes and almost touching medially, with exceptionally stout maxillary guides.
