I am pleased you got these photographs. This is the alpine form of Pseudemoia entrecasteauxii. It gets tricky at the upper treeline and around frost hollow grasslands as the form (colour pattern in this case) of this species changes over a short distance between the typically brown looking not strongly striped widespread morph to this striped morph which can look a bit like P. pagenstecheri. One difference is this form has fewer pale stripes than pagenstecheri. WillO.
