New location of this grasshopper listed as nationally threatened

User's notes

Photo's from both myself and Hannah Zurcher. Taken whilst out on WaterWatch expedition. Lack of wing buds clearly visible, head capsule in proportion to body so likely adult as expected in the species at this time of year. Some older Kangaroo Grass in photo. Have a suspicion as to ID, but want to not bias determinations of the Canberra Nature Map team. Location determined from the Emergency+ app. the foggier photo's from my water-affected phone should also have GPS data. Location almost on top of Rosenburgh's Goanna sighting I uploaded on same day.
