The project is aimed at capturing the unique flora and fauna of the Cooloola Recreation Park in an attempt to highlight the diversity of this area and preserve it for all present and future users. Based in the Cooloola Recreation Park in the Greater Sandy National Park, this area lies on the border of Noosa Biosphere and Cooloola Biosphere. Surrounded by Lake Coortharab the region is home to native flora and fauna that supports the predominant Wet Eucalypt Forests. The area supports the residential community of Boreen Point and Cootharaba.

    Cystococcus
    (genus)
    Taxonomy: Animalia: Arthropoda: Insecta: Hemiptera: Eriococcidae: Cystococcus
    Ken Walker says

    Penny Gullan added: "The photo shows 3 galls of Cystococcus sp. (Eriococcidae), but I can't be sure of the species without seeing the females (and knowing host species and gall size, etc.). More work is needed as there is a new species from the coastal part of the NT and the species in the photo that you sent might be the new species. ".

    Are you able to describe the specmen in more detail? i.e. was it shiny or smooth? were you able to obtain a spore print and what did the spores look like? Images would be most helpful. T
