    Very impressive photos, except for demon wallaby. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be seeing that in my nightmares...

    Beaut photos, you must be very proud of the Rhynchoedura mentalis in particular - not many known specimens of these guys! Well done!

    Great looking photos. The gracilenta is excellent but perhaps a tad tightly cropped.

    The second Crypto headshot has excellent detail, the first is perhaps lit better but again cropped to tight to the front of the animal.

    They are starting to turn up a fair bit now, they just didn't have a live specimen for the description, this is a nice range extension on that in the paper yet obviously many more to come since there are so many areas that we know Rhynchoedura from but that the paper did not confirm the species of.

    Fang101 - that's good there seems to be a few mentalis around, I guess people were probably coming across them before but just thought "oh it's only an ornata" and not bother to collect them (which might explain why only three were found in the AM and QM collections!). Neat little beasties....
