Significant sighting

5 Jan 2021

First record in 5 years and first with photographic evidence for the Tennent district. Cryptic species that is probably under-reported, so any reports that help better understand their local distribution are of interest.

I have noted the error on an other sighting but thought i would add it here as well. The sighting information states that the photo was taken yesterday at 11:04pm but the exif on the photo show it was taken at 10:04am ( Correct ) a glitch?

Hi Shorty. Could this be related to daylight savings time. Perhaps the recording devise is not adjusted to daylight savings?
