EXTRA - Photo Specific Information:
This particular specimen was identified by Matthew Connors with our thanks. Originally identified as a Gumleaf Grasshopper (Goniaea australasiae), but Matthew noticed the error highlighting the head was the wrong shape. You can also see the antennae are much thinner with this species.
