    Tony D. says

    We have the same (undescribed?) Arsipoda species it seems in Tasmania, which is often mistaken for the montane Altica pagana. However that species, like all Altica, never have elytral punctures in series but instead are confused. Also this Arsipoda is often found on sedge/rush.
