  1. Martin Lagerwey  Hello Jodi. I believe your beetle is Paropsisterna decolorata. Here is a link which illustrates both species. (You will need to click on the large image repeatedly to see all 21 images) http://www.padil.gov.au/pests-and-diseases/pest/main/135776# Paropsisterna decolorata has 1/ Larger marbling (dots) on the elytra. 2/ Pronotum pattern has an inverted 'u' shape. 3/ Flaring (light colors, four dots in this case) occurs from the base (where it adjoins the pronotum) of the elytra. Both species are very variable and easy to confuse.
