Leaf Beetle

Paropsisterna capitosa


A bright orange paropsine beetle commonly found throughout Queendsland.


Brisbane Insects describes this species as undetermined paropsisterna but I think it is P. capitosa based on PaDIL. http://www.padil.gov.au/pests-and-diseas... This beetle was spotted by Christiane and sent to me to assist in some research. Thank oyu CG.
