    I confirm. If as "rainbow" as here, must be this species. 1-2 more Ecnolagria are metallic, and also not monochromous (but less colourful). Lagria cyanea is completely blue: http://www.bowerbird.org.au/observations/93571

    After recent confusion between Lagria cyanea and Ecnolagria aurofasciata, I don't know which this is. Ken Walker, can you decide for me please? I will feel happier if an expert decides!

    Am going with Ecnolagria aurofasciata, the one with the rainbowed carapace.
