    Adam Edmonds says

    On comparing search results for M Purpurascens and M Innocua, I am not confident that it matches either species - the images on the Atlas of Living Aus and other sources are inconsistent. Furthermore, it also resembles the M Fulgurans, so I have decided to list it at Genus level only pending further confirmation.

    Comparing: https://sites.google.com/site/insectsoftasmaniacoleoptera/suborder-polyphaga/buprestidae-jewel-beetles/genus-melobasis/melobasis-innocua (I'm not sure how innocua and purpurescens are separated, I suspect they may look quite different but are misidentified).
