TypesHolotype, Australian Museum, Sydney P12887 (Male); allotype, Australian Museum, Sydney P12887 (Female); paratypes, Australian Museum, Sydney P12823 (23 specimens).
Distribution and HabitatThe species has been collected from tributaries of the Pine River at altitudes above 500 m a.s.l. in rainforest in Maiala National Park near Mt. Glorious, northwest of Brisbane, Queensland. Rainforest elsewhere in the area has been extensively cleared through it persists in some gullies of national parks and state forests. Higher ridges support sclerophyll forests. While E. setosus probably occurs elsewhere in the D'Aguilar Range, only the type locality has yielded specimens.
