Not sure about this. Could be the male nymph of a winged species of raspy cricket such as Hadrogryllus sp. as there appear to be some small wing pads on the thorax. Cooraboorama which is totally wingless rarely leaves its burrow by day.

Thanks for your comment. I'm fairly confident it's a Cooraboorama. I agree that the species is almost exclusively nocturnally active, this one was only active in the day because I'd just removed it from a pitfall trap set for Delma impar. Cheers.

Thanks. That explains things. I think such information needs to accompany the image.
