photographing and learning about wildlife
My special interest is entomology and evolution. I studied biology years ago. I breed some local butterflies, moths and stick insects.
Thankyou Daniele. I found two females a couple of years ago so couldn't identify them, beyond guessing. Finally returning to Adelaide to view the excellent type material in the museum, I happened upon another brown form which, fortunately is male and was able to confirm identity. He no longer looks quite so dapper.
Thanks Neil. I found two females a couple of years ago which had me quite confused. During a recent trip to Adelaide I finally found some males and after dissection its identification is sure. Black pronotum and black stripes are certainly unique to Adelaide environs.
