Acacia Leafbeetle

Peltoschema hamadryas


this small plae green leaf beetle was about 7 mm long, slightly larger than the fire blight beetle. It had black patterns at the wing base and middle. The outer elytral margins were clear.
The pronotum looked slightly damaged -the anterior margin showed some black.


Spotted on Acacia wattle.


Patterns vary in this species as can be seen in the reference link.
Family: Chrysomelidae

This poor guy lost half of his pronotum.
The black mark is on its head.
