Beetles, Weevils

A mixed bag.

Posted by Darren on April 10, 2010

I’ve had a request for “more beetles”, so here are a few random shots.  The first is a Eucalyptus Tip Bug (immature form).  This colourful beetle would quiver when approached it as if to warn of  it’s presence,  possibly as it may be toxic to eat.  I think the next shot is a shield bug of some description, though I am unsure as there are so many types.  I have no idea what the last beetle is,  I’ve never seen anything like it before and have yet to find an identity to fit.

These little beetles will make short work of your eucalyptus leaves when they get together.
