Resupinatus applicatus

Hi Graham,
With respect, for having done a bit of online research I find that there seems to be some confusion over this species. EOL, and Wikipedia show the same type, whereas a Google image search displays just how much confusion. Hoping you can point me in the right direction!

Best regards,

Mick My understanding of this

Mick
My understanding of this family (which may be wrong) is that R applicatus is grey to grey brown and R trichotis is greyish brown to almost black and has dark hairs in tufts near the point of attachment.
