- Thanks Dave,based on photos on line, that is the correct identification. I was wondering if the long antennae signified a male, especially as it has not gotten any plumper, but it seems to feed well. With female Childrens having equally long antennae and having seen smaller, similar looking stick insects in the wild locally, it left me in doubt. From the photos that I have now seen it would appear that the larger "immature" stick insects that I have found previously are in fact females of this species. Thanks again.
I would like to identify this species of stick insect, found at Mornington, Victoria, please. It is in with our Children's and Spiny Stick Insects.
This one is in the larger size range of the local stick insects, so it may be a female, but I am not sure.
