Gynoplistia troglophila

Limoniidae  : Hexatominae  : Hexatomini

This species is on the endangered species list. It was first found in the entrance to a cave but is now known to be in low numbers in portions of the western lowland forests of Nelson and northern Westland. Rather than be a troglophile it is best regarded as a forest floor inhabitant.
