Description

Darwin^s Dart?


Found hanging on terrace beam (pic4). Lethargic (cold?), reluctant, unable to fly. No sign of her exceptionally long proboscis - but she was unhappy at being handled and I didn't want to stress her too much. Released on driftwood fern stand (last pic) nearby where the geckos were less likely to find her. Gone the next morning.
