Acacia leaf beetle

Calomela curtisi


A handsome red leaf beetle with metallic blue zones on its elytra and pronotum It looks like it is wearing a smart suit but does not camouflage very well.


Associated with Acacia


Sites Morwell and lifeunseen give this name to the green species so there is some confusion about the correct name I have a bad photo from ages ago and this is an update.
