Description

Field Notes - This was fairly big cicada it was found flying around near an outdoor light at night. I’m thinking it could be the red eye cicada, but the green colouring on its body is putting me off. It says the red eye cicada has a black body.

Field Notes - This spider was found scurrying across a concrete path. As it walked it would bob its abdomen up and down similar to the way cosmophasis jumping spiders do. It was fairly small less than 5mm and had a metallic sheen. Unsure of which family this spider belongs to. Couldn’t get a photo of its eye arrangement either.
