    Physical Description

    Three painted frogs called solidly for four to five nights then not a single call heard since. This is the first time these frogs have been observed or heard after twelve years at this property. A couple of frogs noted mating and a large floating egg mass found on pond and 100s of tadpoles developed thereafter. The frog in the image was about 50mm long.

    Physical Description

    This rare spiked sour-bush popn is growing in Eucalyptus leucoxylon open woodland in shallow sandy-loam soils over calcrete. The seeds on the ground under the shrubs were mainly contained within scats and appeared entirely cleaned of fruits and undamaged.

    Amelia Duval says

    The scats contained coarse plant material and appeared too large for rabbit scats

    Physical Description

    It was thought that the specimen was a large unusual ant lion (lacewing larvae) but Ken Walker at VIC museum explained that it was an owl-fly larvae.

    Habitat

    This larvae was observed amongst the seeds of rare Sclerolaena symoniana that were collected from gypseous lakes. Some seeds were collected from the ground under the plants in red sands and the larvae was most likely gathered up amongst the seeds.

    Amelia Duval says

    Hi Linda The plant is a Mimulus species (monkey-flower) but you may need to check what species occur in you region. If I saw it here in SA I'd call it M. prostratus or M. repens but I'm sure you'll have other taxa around Bega. Regards Dan
