Paropsisterna beata

I counted 17 individuals of these leaf beetles actively crawling all over a large gum tree, with a few pairs mating. There were also some black eggs laid in formation on several leaves of the same tree, possibly from this species. Five photos uploaded.

    • Andrew Allen  I've added a photo of the eggs, although I don't know if they're from this species...
