This beetle is known as Paropsisterna cloelia according to original description, which also occurs in melanic and partially melanic variations. Paropsisterna variicollis is dominant south of the nation including Perth and Tasmania and is very similar in every detail except overlay of golden colored pattern on pronotum and scutellum, and tessellation on the elytra. There is a good case that these two are conspecific, with P. cloelia being senior synonym.0 votes
