Other Common Names
Large Darter

I saw this female from the steps leading down from a small carpark going down to Kings Beach, near Broken Head. I was very fortunate, as I had to make my way through tangled vines etc to get close enough for photos, and she remained there despite the fact that I could not avoid disturbing the plant on which she sat. She sometimes jumped when the flash went off, but she did allow me to get shots from both sides, plus some fleeting views of her upperside when she jumped. I did see a male as well, but he had disappeared by the time I got close to his perch.
