Description

In the peak of the top end dry season. A mantis crashed into the spotlight of my parked vehicle and fell on the ground, stunned. The katydid immediately arrived and began eating it. This is a dried up creek bed and the nearby vegetation is extremely dry - perhaps the katydid desperately needed the moisture. Bowerbird.org.au sighting being moved to iNaturalist as the former website is shutting down.

Description

Fruit had a mushroom shape, with quite a strong, woody stem and attachment.
Upperside was white, with centre area brown. As the fruit aged, the entire upper side of the cap turned a dark chestnut brown.

Underside was very interesting, composed of densely packed teeth, which tapered to a fine point. These Teeth were quite robust with little flexibility, though softened in older specimens. Teeth travelled down the stem quite a distance, particularly on the under portion of the stem.

Largest caps were 3-5cm across. 4-6cm long, but would be longer as the stem curves upward (almost into a U shape on some).

Also had almost root like lengths of mycelium joining several pairs of mushrooms together. when a fruit was removed, these very tough lengths of mycelium remained attached pulling away from the branch intact.

Collected: Sample OAM24.

Field Notes - So, I only saw one of these, but my friend told me there were heaps of them in a nearby park... however I’m surprised if they’re so common because I couldn’t find any reference to these in my research, except for a type from California, USA.... could this be a recently invasive species, or are my souces just bad? Anyway, specific details of this sighting: bug was on some roadside debris, and appeared to be gathering somethibg too small for me to see (something it eats?), and seemed to be quite alone (I only saw one).

Larva of a nymphid lacewing Osmylops species. Identification thanks to Tim New. This larva turned up in some leaf-litter during a search for spiders as part of our Bush Blitz of Flinders Island in March 2014. Although tiny, it would eventually grown into quite a monster, and with those jaws would be a formidable predator of ants, though it's not a true ant-lion in the strict sense of the word.
