Descripción

Feral mob towards top of slope in image 1 and cropped version is image 2.Base of Mount Hack. We estimated the group numbered between 15 and 20 goats. Fortunately professional shooters were on an adjacent section (with closed, signed gate) so after we informed the lease manager the goats suffered a major loss in numbers the following day. (The Mount Hack section was the next intended culling ground anyway, so we were lucky to sneak in our Mount Hack walk in time.)

Descripción

A lone straggler, compared with the many seen at the same night light 2 nights earlier, when it was starting to rain. This one could possibly have emerged several nights earlier, with the main lot, but it seemed in reasonably good condition and I suspect it was a late emerger. (Locals told us that they had been seeing plenty of Rain Moths for up to about 5 days prior our arrival late on 5th May, so assuming those were the same species its fair to say that they had timed their emergences to cover about a week, before the main rain event and with a few during and maybe even just after(?).
Nb FWIW we didn't see any empty pupae anywhere on this trip, which surprised me.

Unhealthy mature tree low on side of the scree slope bank of a gorge.(A 2nd similar example, also mature but slightly smaller, is present in a few images).
Appears to have suffered heavy defoliation from uncertain causes but is rallying somewhat. (Same applies to the 2nd tree mentioned above).

Descripción

Quite common locally (and probably more widespread) in damper areas (eg as in this case)where ephemeral watercourses pass under the national highway, flowing into GSV in the west and arising from the west-facing slopes of the southern Flinders Ranges.
This plant can form rather tangled untidy thickets, with erect to drooping branches, and when associated with river red gums it usually forms part of the understory to a few metres high.
When it grows in the open with little competition from tall trees it can form a
reasonably tidy medium to large shrub (perhaps even a small tree),with a short base consisting of a single trunk or several erect trunks , dividing with increasing height but retaining a reasonably erect form, with however attractive weeping tip branchlets in favourable conditions (NB: the final images in the above sequence are of one example found growing in full sun away from the eucalyptus canopy and closer to the bitumen verge. But it could be a root sucker for all I know).
Scanty presence of dull orange to yellow-brown fleshy fruits on tips of some branchlets noted for the species irrespective of microhabitat.
. I think it may be a type of sheep bush (Geijera genus).
Flowers are small, inconspicuous and pale green-yellow- cream.
