This Tridentid was found in Melbourne, Australia on several brands of Tiptop and Woolworths bread, in at least 5 color variants. Its population was first recorded in August of 2021, but is rapidly diminishing, as A. hebechela‘s ecological niche is now occupied by invasive cardboard mimics that replicate its exact morphology, down to the smoothly curved oral hooks and wide lateral handles. Discovered and described by occlupanologist A. Lee (FORC).
