This is Paropsis albae.
I know this species now from a preview of a scientific paper yet unpublished. It is endemic to New Guinea and this is the first record for Queensland, Australia.

There you are!
I will visit the Victorian museum collection on Monday.
I expect to find a name for your green Paropsis, still a favorite of mine :)
I shall let you know.
