This is for all the other insects and other invertebrates that occur in Riddells Creek. Note that there are other collections for specific groups including Butterflies, Moths, Grasshoppers, Dragonflies, Spiders.
Lots on a Cherry Ballart (Exocarpos cupressiformis). I notice there are a few pics on the internet of this species on Exocarpos species. They are adept at hiding, by moving to the other side of the twig/branch they are on.
About half the size of the other common, large red Netelia wasp seen at this location. ID as Netelia spp. by Ken Walker who is also not sure it is Netelia spp.. Ken added "There are several genera (eg: Enicophilus, Ophion, Leptophion, Riekophion etc) that all have the same body shape and colour. The wing venation is the key to distinguishing these genera. I have punted for Netelia as and identification because I believe I can see a small triangular cell on the outer margins of the forewings."
White 'spectacles'. White socks on rear legs. White bands on antennae. In open woodland. Exhibited hunting wasp behaviour (short low flights, antennae monitoring ground activity). Same species as 12494. Very small.
