This is a fantastic sighting, Emily - it's got me very excited. It is not a species I was expecting to be in the ACT at all.
For the benefit of all, I followed this up with Emily who (so it turned out) is the young daughter of someone I've known for years. Seems it was trapped in their netted vege patch that morning. A really great find. There is another record now in Atlas of Living Australia (of a female from Aranda, 1 April 2010) but that record was not available through ALA until more recently.
