    Linda, I am an educator at the Museum of Tropical Queensland in Townsville and I was wondering if I could use this image of the Rentz's Sipyloidea Stick-insect in an interpretation panel about live specimens of these phasmids. My email is claire.speedie@qm.qld.gov.au

    Thank you Kimberi! Wish this site was still the one to go to, am a member of Australia iNaturalist, but I really miss our old Bowerbird.
