Feather-horned Longicorn

Rhipidocerus australasiae

Description:

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...

Habitat:

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