Hi Abby,
We are sorry we don’t know your species, but this is a Scarab. We have heard of Christmas Beetles, most in the genus Anoplognathus, and we suspect this might be one of the unpictured species. We also wrote to Eric Eaton who responded: “I would tentatively agree with your ID of the Australian scarab. Certainly something in the same subfamily (Rutelinae).”
