Paropsine leaf beetle


A small reddish coloured beetle with a sprinkling of pale spots. Pale underneath. Pattern on elytra doesn't seem as symmetrical as most paropsines. The 'dome' shape was wonky near the rear and a single dark patch was on the starboard side so it might be a malformed specimen..


On a very small E.viminalis in a local nature reserve.


Paropsisterna variicollis was also around as was Paropsis atomaria.
Still to search for this one...
