This jewel beetle was a little more elusive than most. Possibly as it was about half the size of most of the others it could bury itself into the flowers more easily. Estimated 11mm long and the yellow loops were in two shades. These photos might be of 3 specimens.
On Leptospermum scoparium in a local nature reserve.
Pictured here mixing it with C klugii and C sexplagiata.
