Southernmost record of Noumea subnivalis

Dear Bill,
I have recently found a photo of Noumea subnivalis. The photographer didn't recognize the species but I am pretty sure that this is N. subnivalis, which would make this the southernmost record of the species, as far as I know. I am very grateful for his permission to use it to your Forum.

Thanks Nishina,
Yes this is Noumea subnivalis. It will be interesting to see just what the geographic range of this species is.
Best wishes,
