Description:

How did all that fit in there !!
Penultimate instar? moults in our garden. Female I suspect.

Pic 3 shows the distinctive inner elbow patch indicative of this species.
It remained hanging nearby for 24 hours drying out I guess.
Very dry conditions. Not much food around. Still watching.
