Yes a good find. Can you supply more info on habitat please.

Definitely, it was black sally grassy woodland, with much of the vegetation being Poa, clustered everlasting, alpine Swan greenhood and sheeps burrs

Thanks Matt.. Intersting, because sheeps Burr, Acaena sp., is one of the food palnts recorded for Keyacris, although my own view is that they are polyphagous.
