Whinrays Cave Cricket (Parvotettix whinrayi
) is a small terrestrial cricket that occurs only on the Kent Group of islands in Bass Strait. It occupies near-coastal caves and under boulders on Deal, Erith, Dover and North East islands, and is reported from just 10 sites. There are no immediately identifiable threats to the species. However, factors such as illegal collection, possible competition with other invertebrates, predation by introduced rodents, climate change and stochastic events are considered as possible threats to the populations.
