Great find, John. Yet another location for this species in the ACT. Still trying to work out what to make of it!

I have just reviewed the photos I took around this one and I made a mistake with the location. It was at the confluence of the Cotter and Paddys rivers. Sorry to have mislead you, John

Ah, OK - that makes more sense. I won't now ask the question about what the vegetation was like at the small dam on Mt Ainslie. Thanks for correcting the sighting location.
