Paropsis_variegata_BillyBore This beetle is strongly speckled like many allied species are.<br />
This is my first sighting of this species and if you check the links, the only image available is a dead one I took from the pinned museum collection for reference purposes.  <br />
There are two more members of Paropsis genus for Victoria which I will target this season and about three rare ones that I do not realistically expect to find.  That is the set.   :) Australia,Geotagged,Paropsis variegata,Spring,paropsis Click/tap to enlarge PromotedSpecies introCountry intro
