Canarvonella sp aka Green-body Matchstick (?)
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Arthropoda
Class: Insecta
Order: Orthoptera
Superfamily: Eumastacoidea
Family: Eumastacidae
Mount George Conservation Park, South Australia – November 1st, 2014 – high rocky path area in mild, breezy conditions

The distinctive clambering with their their short front legs and long back legs is very different from the typical hop we expect from Grasshoppers – I love watching the Matchstick Grasshoppers – I have done my best with the ID, but it’s just a guess.
