Author's notes

A large aggregation of this species is seen hiding in my hollow log. I found them here and more in another spot when I was cleaning up in preparation for the bush fires. The others dispersed when I pulled up a lot of dead Kikuyu that was a fire hazard

Classed as a beetle. Difficult to be sure Trish - can you enlarge one of the beetles?

Hi Mike I don't have the expertise to enlarge but have cropped the photo to try and zoom in a bit! Where do I send or post the updated pic please?
   25 Jan 2020
Cropping is good. Use the Edit button, top right of this page, and upload pic as previously.
