A few years back, I took a year off to spend every day in my garden - cooking and preserving what I grew. I wrote about my journey in order to share my learnings. In that year I developed quite an interest in the little things I discovered along the way, particularly spiders, insects and birds. In such a short time, discovered that even though I had much work to do in terms of establishing my garden, I already had so much diversity out there. Imagine what I'll find as the plant and aquatic biodiversity grows! Stay tuned!

    Hi Ken, would it be possible to delete this duplicate account that only has 3 sightings on it? And if we do, will it affect any of the three projects that I might have created with it?

    I note Nick Porch's comments on Martin Lagerwey's sighting in May this year (http://www.bowerbird.org.au/observations/36133) : "Sort of...Diaea as a genus is not in Australia. Symkowiak's revision of the Australian species that were placed in this genus placed them in a range of other genera like Australomisidia and Lehtinelagia (Symkowiak 2014)." So, is it Diaea or is it not?

    Thanks Ken and Peter for your ID's. I've been doing my homework on this one - I've been counting up it's key features and comparing those to other pictures of Anthelidae caterpillars. I strongly suspect that this is P. amplicornis. They are out en force in the Craigieburn Grasslands right now.

    None of the Victorian Pterolocera can be definitely put to species. This looks like one of the lined group, feeding on grass.

    Hi Jodi - I just saw your BowerBird blog post but for some reason I cannot reply. My direct email is : kwalker@museum.vic.gov.au Currently there is a bug in the software that prevents an image being uploaded as Project background image. Sorry - hoping to have it fixed soon.
