This beetle was exploring the stem of a small Kunzea shrub and, after some time, it stopped and began to 'wriggle'. She was laying reddish coloured eggs into a fault in the skin of the plant. About 40mm long body. This specimen with one red antenna and one mostly black.
In a nature reserve adjacent to a large man-made reservoir.
The male of this species is smaller and has very 'feathery' (lamellate) antennae.
About 12mm long body. Initially I thought a type of jewel beetle but later showed Cerambycid features. Antennae show white bands towards the outer ends. Four front orange femurs two rear black.
Hiding in the dried remains of flowers (peeled away) on a shrub yet to be identified. Similar to Pittosporum? Police Paddocks.
