    Could you please add a location in words, since bowerbird no longer interprets the coordinates

    Was almost touching this antlion before I realised it was there, resting on an old grass tree flower spike. It was so well camouflaged! Body length approx 40mm. From tip of antennae to tip of wings approx 50mm. Am I on the right track to suggest it might be Heoclisis fundata? It remained in this spot in the garden all day and was gone when I checked for it an hour or so after dark fell.

    Many thanks for the ID Ken. I couldn't get it to accept the written address when I added the sighting, so had to use coordinates. I've edited it to include the address words as well now (I think!). I was excited by this discovery - my first sighting of this stunning species! Thanks again.
