Fantastic photos, especially the group shot of them bathing in the creek. Thanks for uploading to Canberra Nature Map.

If possible, a best estimate (even if only a guess) would be preferred as an abundance, especially for this endangered species. 16-100 is quite a broad range and a more specific abundance quality of the record.

I am sure others have more of an idea of how many there are. I simply picked 16-100 as that was one of the choices. Please amend when you have good data numbers. Cheers.
