Description

Brought into house by domestic cat, rescued, and released back onto adjacent cobble beach. Tail lost, lucky escape. There is a small population on this beach, mostly where the shoreline has Muelhenbeckia complexa. Some are very tan in colour, some darker like this specimen. ID confirmed by Tony Jewell.
