Feather-horned Longicorn

Rhipidocerus australasiae


About 3cm long, with large feathery antennae. Green colouration with a 'velvety' surface. So far the research has brought up Piesarthrius marginellus, but the colour and markings don't match...


Found at night attracted to lights, in farmland area with some patches of rainforest, on the Atherton Tablelands.
