A lot of individual sawfly larvae were feeding on 'sword grass' below a medium sized eucalyptus. Being near midday they would probably climb back up the tree at sunset and cluster into a mass.
Eucalyptus forest near ocean foreshore.
This is a type I have not seen before. Very different from the green eucalypus or melaleuca species. Is there a sawfly which feeds on poaceae ??? It was on a stiff grass just like this one 80km away http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/154...
