This Brush-tailed Phascogale visited my water tub two nights in a row. The still image is on the second night 29/1/2018 and the video is on 28/1/2018 at 2.48am. Neither visit was for very long hence the slightly blurred still photo and the very short video clip.
This very gravid female came to the light-trap. She began laying eggs shortly after arriving and deposited them in 3 areas. I am unable to determine the exact species. A series of images are presented including the eggs as they are being deposited on the ground.
This is an unusual resting position for E. encalypti. There were so many bugs on the sheet that I think this elevated position is a defensive pose. At least it gave me a chance to get a good image of its head including palps. See second image.
