Question: What is the most unique thing you found exploring down there in the wilderness?

Keywords: , , ,

  1. The most unique animal I have found to-date was a Cryptic Sun Moth (Synemon theresa). It was found in my own backyard while I was searching for insects to bring along to a “Bring Us Your Bugs” event at the SA Museum. The last specimen the SA Museum had for this particular species was submitted back in 1939 and the last time it had been seen in Adelaide was 15 years earlier.

    At the time it was considered quite a find – even made the evening TV news and the local newspapers.
