The Australian contingent
Insects seemed few and far between out in the country. Seasonally it was the right time to be there but not much was seen. The orthopterans were conspicuous by their absence.
The grasshopper above is a wingless pyrgomorph.
The two katydids above were found in a high mountain meadow and seemed restricted to a large-leafed composite plant. The were identified as Anormalous zhangi Liu, a species previous known only from males.
