Nososticta solitaria (Fivespot Threadtail)

The scant information given concerning Nososticta soliltaria is that it “inhabits streams and rivers, including those that dry to pools. It’s range appears to cover the northeast of Australia. I’m assuming that the five spots in the common name refer to those along the abdomen.

I met these characters only at the ford approaching the eccentric Platypus Bushcamp. Keeping to the shade, lighting was difficult so I had to try and use flash to get these rather average pictures.
