I'm assuming this is C. atrovespa; not the best of photos and doesn't look too healthy.

It's in Aranda where I took you. I am using early builds of the Nature Mapr app for Android, and one of the current issues is the pixelation of images when uploaded from the field.

Hi Matt, does the very latest build (1014) still have this pixelating issue? Cheers

Matt the location is south of Aranda Bushland is this right?

The location is incorrect. My GPS freaks out in Aranda Bushland. I will re-position it later. I am using the latest build Aaron.

I have confirmed it as C. atrovespa. I was confused when I saw the location as North West Rural Canberra (and the map shosw it as being near the Cork Oaks!).

Thanks Matt. OK good to know. I will file this as an outstanding bug for the next build.

Wow. In the 3 hours it takes to go to uni, do a prac (coincidentally on plants) and get back, the plant gets chomped by a roo. Having said that, most plants have been chomped...

Sure it was a roo, not a rabbit or a chough, or something else.

No. I'm not sure it was a roo, but it left the stem and leaf. There are multiple plants in that condition. I did manage to find one in flower.
