Knocklofty Reserve, Hobart
   

Female
Mid January 2013
Sisters Beach
On marram grass.  This one is a female, and it’s interesting that Lea (1904) noted that some females have the legs entirely red (like this one) – some males have them entirely dark, but in general for both sexes they’re reddish with some parts dark brown.
