Deceived again

Last week we were wandering a path in the Mitchell River National Park in Gippsland when I spotted a most unusual white and hairy insect egg on a leaf on the ground and photographed it. What could it possibly be?

Then someone showed me a seed case they'd found. Oops. I had my answer. It's the seed case of the Kurrajong tree that grows in this park.

G'day Boobook,
A very understandable miss-identification. The Kurrajong is a lovely tree. I think you were just about on its southern limit there on the Mitchell.
