I found this Atagema spongiosa at Lord Howe Island last week, David Mullins suggested I send it to you to note distribution. I haven't seen one before and it was very well camouflaged.
Locality: Landslide, Malabar - Lord Howe Island, NSW, Pacific, 30 November 2007, Intertidal. Length: approx 120 mm. Photographer: Margaret Crook.
I have a couple of other unusual finds from Lord Howe over recent years & will obtain further details and send to you.

Thanks for the record and congratulations on finding it. As you say, "it is very well camouflaged".
I look forward to seeing your other records
