This is Paropsisterna spp. It belongs in the interlita group but not sure the species. It looks like one that Russel Best has photographed in his lawn. http://natureshare.org.au/observations/53b3985ae35eb12984010d2c?species=Paropsisterna+spp.&tag= It is related to Paropsisterna intacta, an under bark nocturnal species. It features foveae (small dimples) in the sides of the pronotum, emphasized in this case by a black dot. I have seen this only once before at Taggerty on a small shrub. Found on a messmate eucalyptus. Seems to be diurnal
