You should send your Eucalypt beetle photos to the folks at UC Riverside so that they can keep tabs on the species appearing down there.

We've had quite a few Eucalyptus pests imported into California in recent years. We have several species of Eucalypt Chrysomelidae now. Did you get any other shots of the beetle?
