Austrogomphus amphiclitus (Pale Hunter)

Austrogomphus amphiclitus (Pale Hunter) misses the Cape York peninsular in the north and Victoria in the southeast but otherwise ranges over the eastern coast of Australia, including inland southern Queensland. The identification points made in Theischinger/Hawking refer to small details rather than the more easily visible markings, so I’m uncertain how definitive those are.

I met and captured just a single shot of a male in the Moss Garden track at Carnarvon Gorge and, later, many shots of a couple of females in Yugarapul Park, Brisbane, where I also collected an unwanted tick which happily did not attach.
