Like the Katydid. Probably D. pardina but could be confused with D. semilunulata, although not sure this is known from Mt Majura

Thanks. D. semilunulata was actually recorded near here on Mt Majura last year.

I forgot to add D. semilunulata (one record @ http://canberra.naturemapr.org/Community/Sightings/Details/3364630) to the Mt Majura Flora 2017 update (I would be unable to distinguish between D.semilunulata and D. pardina).

CathB commented on this and thought it was D. semilunulata and on closed look I think she is probably right. I will check it again.

What do you think Cath?

I would be happy to call this D. semilunulata. The very rounded dorsal sepal and the orangey colour of the markings look like that species.
