Descrição

Not sure if the red back, and red antennae ends, make this one a different species to our previous sighting? This one seems slightly smaller as well at ~9mm.

The previous sighting was dirty which doesn't help see the colour, but had a black back & black antennae.

Descrição

Honey Brown Beetle (Ecnolagria rufescens)
@borisb Unfortunatly photographed 8 years ago, b4 I was capturing specimens, so not very good shots of leg spines. On my link are some ventral female shots; no leg spines
@cobaltducks This is the other one we get in SA, similar to yours the other day. You can see the middle antennae segments are a different shape. Round here, slight spurs on yours.
Next time you find a male would be good to get photo's of the middle & rear legs (tibial spurs) & ventral for Boris .... well all of us really :-)

Descrição

Big-headed Ant (Pheidole sp) I think
2 noded petiole with large head.
The back of the dorsal surface of the abdomen has 2 rear facing spines.
The 1st node of the petiole has a vertical projection terminating in 2 spines/lumps.
~6mm long
Seems similar to the previous observation but slightly larger & slightly darker head. The colour variation could be camera artifacts rather than real.
Found in close proximity.
I wonder if it's the same species?

Descrição

Thought was a Big Headed Ant (Pheidole sp)
BUT
Only one petiole node
No stinger nor anal hairs.
ergo Dolichoderinae
The head also seems too smooth for Pheidole.
Does resemble Anonychomyrma sp in head shape.
6mm long
Strange comb like mandibles, couldn't get a clear shot though.

Any thoughts anyone?

Not sure if it's the same as before, nor if it's a female or a juvi male. The sternum isn't fully black, but is still hairy.

Descrição

Grey Badge Huntsman-Neosparassus sp ES2
Interesting it looks VERY similar to a Neosparassus magareyi that @matthew_connors id'ed 6 months ago
https://inaturalist.ala.org.au/observations/18879246
BUT they seem restricted to the North of Australia; primarily near Darwin, but with one record by QLD Museum on the East Coast of Qld.
Of course it could be a Isopedella or Isopeda but for me
1. Eye brow
2. Spotted under legs
3. Badge is too strong
all make it a Badge huntsman
Interestingly, the Sternum is hairy!
Quite unusual.
This is a male. We found an identical one some 60km north east of here too.
Sometime our specimens look dead (like the curled up legs here) but most of the time they are alive, but cold/asleep from the fridge. This one soon woke up and tried to jump on me ;-)
These have hairy pads on their feet and can easily walk up glass.

Here are 2 others that have a similar badge. The level of white seems different, but same shape:
