Approximately 18mm long.
Moving in short bursts.
In a local national park in heavily wooded forest and within the grooves of a very rough barked endemic Eucalyptus tree.
Common name is a mystery especially as this specimen was paler around the head than most other places.
I haven't seen this species before. Camouflage was very impressive and the animal was only noticed when it made a short dash to the next crevice.
If I have the correct ID then this one is also found in Hong Kong and the Philippines which begs the question of host plant species or was it inadvertently introduced there.
