Description

A small Castiarina I didn't think I had seen before.
About 10mm long; all metallic green and yellow.
Sexual dimorphism? Some C.flavopicta are 40% larger. Some are orange and blue. Patterns are larger and smaller than this diminishing completely in places. Many different coloured pronotum and head. etc.

    • Mark Ridgway  Thanks David. Many seem to be orange and blue (among other colours) and larger. Maybe some sex dimorphism... I'll chat with Martin as he has the variations in one pic.
