    dont think its a vapourer because of the solid stripe along the back. Either way a native tree is probably a fairly safe bet

    I've put him in the middle of a big acer but I think he might have fallen down into the undergrowth.. He'll have to find his own way up.
    I'm pretty sure it's the grey dagger.
    Thanks all.
