A golden/green leaf beetle, sometimes with a red pigment extending from the base of the elytra. This species occurs from NSW to Victoria. A Tasmanian species is golden, rather than green and called Paropsisterna aurea. The Tasmanian beetle is still considered a different species but they are quite identical to this golden one and probably all belong to Paropsisterna hectica and will become synonomized in due course. This is found on Snow Gum (White Sallee). Also found in Licola.
This is Paropsisterna atalanta. A rotund and mottled leaf beetle feeding on Eucalyptus in the Anglesea heathland. I have seen this in Gisborne and Eildon. It is variable with black marks on the elytra at the base or the apex.
