The identity of this species is unclear, as the specimens in the ANIC identified as M. vinosus  by A. Lea and E. C. Zimmerman comprise a number of closely similar species. Careful study of Pascoe’s type, in the collection of the Natural History Museum in London , is required to establish the precise identity of M. vinosus  . It was described from South Australia (probably Adelaide), and no host records are available for it.
