Description

Four photos. These shiny blue insects were on an unidentified rush sp. about 40cm high. They are quite lively and it was windy so hard to photograph. See also Jeff Tripett's photo from 3 Dec 2018.

  1. Jeff Triplett  Congrats on the photos. I think you mean Andrew Allens obs: https://natureshare.org.au/observations/5c0644a71779a4866a000028. My camera does not have that much magnification!

  2. David Francis  Not unlike Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Altica

  3. David Francis  Andrew' suggestion looks very good too. Arispoda sp. Might have to leave it as subfamily Galerucinae which could be added.

  4. David Francis  Galerucinae subfamiy added.

  5. David Francis  Yes, I think Arsipoda sp. (Flea beetle) is a good match. I can see the jumping hind legs. Arsipoda spp. added to db.
