    Is this another version of Paropsisterna sexpustulata or a separate species? The spots were more like narrow streaks.

    Martin Lagerwey says

    Paropsisterna nigerrima is common and widespread, clockwise to Perth, not including Tasmania. Not further north. It comes in black and striped chromatic variations and this one is kinda between. The same range occurs in parts of Victoria and NSW. Same rule works, if puncturation series are deep, then its nigerrima. If smooth, there are many possibilities.

    Thanks, Martin, for these IDs. I wondered if this might be another nigerrima, although it is different from the others I've seen here, but the other one tricked me.
