I suggest this is probably a gum hopper, not a moth e.g see sighting No. 3401874

Hi Aaron
Thanks for this photo. I have downloaded the original, cropped it and added it back to aid in identification.

I'm not confident about the Platybrachys sp. suggestion, which I made to shift it out of the Moths section in with the Leafhoppers.

Glad you had such a good day yesterday.
Just a query about this one - even tho the maintenance is up to date, it is still showing Unidentified Moth at the top of the page, ie not the new suggestion.

Aaron, apparently when I made the new suggestion the top of the page changed, but not when michaelb did it.

Thanks guys. I think this heading has a small dependency on the maintenance service running, and it had been down at the time. Then when it caught back up, it may have missed this. We'll look into why it didn't pick this up and refresh the heading. Probably a coding issue and a small change required...
