    Diastella
    (genus)
    Taxonomy: Animalia: Arthropoda: Insecta: Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae: Diastella
    Matthew Connors says

    This individual is a good match for D. kuranda, but that species is not known from this far south. In fact, there are no published Diastella records south of Cairns but north of around Gladstone, and so I am at a loss as to what this one actually is. The white spot is also seen in D. kuranda so it may be a variant of that species, but I have seen others around that have significantly different colouration as well.
