Taken at the ferry terminal at Penneshaw, Kangaroo Island, South Australia.
It was being predated by an unknown sp. of grasshopper, hence the lack of a leg!
I suspect it to be some kind of Abantiades species, but am by no means certain of this.
Great find Dave. I agree it looks like a Hepialidae.. the leg muncher would have been katydid (Tettigoniidae) not grasshopper. :) Welcome to Project Noah.
