This project will allow Friends of Warrandyte State Park to collect records of flora and fauna found at or near our indigenous nursery at Pound Bend Warrandyte. FOWSP is a volunteer group of 290 families, with a mutual interest in the conservation and rehabilitation of native bushland in the Warrandyte State Park. Formed in 1982, FOWSP is now one of the largest and most active “Friends” groups in the state. The aim of our group is to foster awareness of the natural values of the Park and to assist the Rangers in the care and protection of both the State Park and the Warrandyte-Kinglake Nature Conservation Reserve. Our Group also runs an indigenous plant nursery in the Pound Bend area of the Park. We also provide information on indigenous plants, weeds and various aspects of bushland conservation to our local community.

    Macrotona australis
    (species)
    Taxonomy: Animalia: Arthropoda: Insecta: Orthoptera: Acrididae: Macrotona: australis
    Common Names: Grasshoppers, Common Macrotona
    Robert Read says

    Definitely Macrotona. I think M. australis is the only species likely at this location. In other areas it might not be possible to identify to species level without more details.
