Significant sighting

Tapirlord noted:
20 Nov 2023

Whilst not uncommon nationally, particularly in Tasmannia. This species has only been occasionally recorded from the ACT and northern Kosciusko ranges. This is a new location and the first ACT record in at least 30 years. We would appreciate all further records of this genus.
