About 4 plants in this fenced biosite area between Middle Gully Road and the railway line south of Woodend. This is the third location for the Dwarf Geebung in the Macedon Ranges. Previously recorded in a gully at Barrm Birrm, Riddells Creek and along the rail line just south of the Macedon station. Not common in Macedon Ranges but may exist in other areas along the railway.
A coralline red seaweed washed ashore from deeper waters. The jointed stems contain lime/calcium absorbed from sea water. The bleached, calcareous skeletons of Corallines are commonly found washed up on beaches.
Note the complex ("tangled") wing venation, particularly the seven or so close parallel veins from the tip of the wing. The Tangle-vein flies are larval parasites of grasshoppers and scarab beetles. Found resting on a Senecio plant on a cool morning in forest near the top of Mount Macedon.
(There is a stamen sticking to the right wing)
