Arbanitis sp

Beautiful chocolate brown this girl.
I found her under a rock in loose sandy soil without having to dig and not enough recent rain to flood her out - in the same gully as my Stanwellia hoggi - two days ago walking with my sons. I thought she was a burrowing roach at first. We also found some A. robustus slings not too far away.
 
There seems to be a few chocolate Arbanitis males hitting facebook ID pages at the moment. I had not seen one so dark before. Absolutely stunning. She has stayed completely still until today.
