Significant sighting

27 Sep 2020

It appears to be a very rare species in the ACT region. I think this is only the second record from the ACT.

User's notes

Was hiding in a pile of bricks. Very cold today with a dusting of snow on the mountains.

Will do you think there is anything we should ask Stromolo Forest Park to do re management of this species?

This is on private property. Not sure we will ever see it again. This area of the property does not get used very often and is mostly open bushland. Happy to take on any suggestions.
