Author's notes

Another sighting similar to 4206810 hence I've used the identification from that sighting. The insect appears to have eight simple eyes on either side of its head, adjacent to the antennae and it appears to have 8 legs (insect? : two white legs seen pointing forwards beneath its body in some images). It was found resting on a leaf in the ANBG Rainforest Gully and then became quite active when disturbed by the camera. Thanks to Marcus Leach for the initial sighting.
