~10mm length. Found in our yard. ID by Ferenc Vilisics @ BugGuide.
Many, many slaters under a stack of firewood (gum) left sitting in a paddock.
Found while sifting soil from around Arum rhizomes.
The Waihou river is in full flood and after many months of very little water the Te Aroha Wetlands are flooded (The board walks are under water) and the surface of the water is covered in all manner of invertebrates (Duck smorgasbord)
