Notius depressus

Notius depressus


Springtime has either brought these out of the bark of large eucalypts or these are the new seasons generation - most likely the former as I haven't seen any early instars. About 20mm long these appear as bright pink after their final moult and within an hour or so they turn blue. This one is very dark blue to almost black.


Suburban parklands within the bark of large eucalyptus.

Nice colors on this one.
I think they overwinter as an adult.
I have also found the nymph last season.
