My special interest is entomology and evolution. I studied biology years ago. I breed some local butterflies, moths and stick insects.

Nice sighting. Did you know that goanna is a mispronounced iguana? someone just dropped the 'I'. You know how we get lazy with our words.

Well done Neil. I do not recall seeing them flower in Victoria. I do know several arum lillies that are also weeds and have toxic sap. I would give you the award!

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.

This specimen is undescribed. It occurs north of your location and right across the top end. It has been recorded by Gunter Maywald of Brisbane and will soon be described and named by him. Until that time, it is Sp 69.
