These are not the best photos, but the bird was photographed by many people over a 2 month period and was positively identified from those photos. Bird was first found at Point Walter, Bicton, on 22 January 2019. It was relocated 9km north at Herdsman Lake where it stayed until at least the 19 March 2019. This was a first record for Australia. Record was accepted by Birds Australia Rarities Committee (BARC).

My son found this at school today. This large Temognatha species is moderately common in Alice Springs but I have been unable to find a species name for it. Can anybody help?

Place

Private

Description

Plants growing under Melaleuca uncinata. Flowers are completely underground except for a ring of bracts pushing above the ground and leaf litter under the trees. Tiny flies were observed leaving the flower.

Flowers were gently excavated, bracts eased open. After photos were taken, the bracts were closed, sand and leaf litter repositioned around flower.

Very few of these plants are observed and classed as Threatened Flora (Declared Rare Flora — Extant).

Unfortunately during 1988 a wildfire burnt the area and the orchids have not been relocated at this location.

Bolbe with attachments
I've never seen a mantis with any sort of attachments, but this little one was covered in large dirt particles - maybe for camouflage? It didn't seem accidental and certainly did a good job of breaking up the mantis's outline, so I'm curious to know whether the mantis did it itself. Has anyone seen this sort of thing before?
