    Thanks Craig, great sighting, this is an Austrolimnophila crane fly, the way they rest sometimes can make them look a bit spiderlike

    Habitat

    Damp, open forest

    Craig Boase says

    Possible Crane Fly (Tipulidae)? I've never seen Crane Flies rest like this, almost spider-like. Found in damp forest near the Tarra River.
