Zaprochilus australis Brullé, 1835 (Tettigoniidae)

Zaprochilus australis Brullé, 1835 (Tettigoniidae, Zaprochilinae). David Rentz confirmed the identity of this species. Isaac Wishart found it on 10 April 2018 whilst working for us on restoration on the ARCS Ankida Wildlife Sanctuary. This site is 633 m asl. The tegmina (thick forewings) of this female has a 'peculiar' rolled or tubular appearance at rest for good camouflage.
