Author's notes

The dark beetle just about did my patience; it was obscured from every angle. The other one I didn't see until editing the photos. Is its the same species just upsidedown?

Thanks for the underside photo Kylie - it really helps with the ID. This is a very interesting sighting. It is a first electronic record for the Wodonga - Albury area for this species and as the name suggests it normally feeds on Pittosporum. In your photo it is feeding on Bursaria spinosa which is in the Pittosporum family.
