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."
Limosella australis is a new species record for Riddells Creek and the Macedon Range area. Unusual spathulate leaves. Wet edge of dam, hidden under a thicket of Eleocharis sphacelata. Elatine gratioloides in the background.
Many thousands of plants at this site. Mostly single-stemmed and upright but occasionally multi-stemmed and ascending stems on plants one foot wide. Flowers very small, same size as Cicendia and Sebaea.
