    Nice series! We've only the one Sepedon species listed. Are they of the same individual? The first one looks a lot darker on the thorax, especially the sides (which is more like Graham's specimen - see link). The species has attracted a few synonyms so perhaps there is variation? http://www.bowerbird.org.au/observations/67833

    They were probably different individuals - there were about half a dozen in the long grass and generally appeared the same so maybe a variation indeed.
