This eye-catching beetle crawled out of the mulch around a potted lime tree as I was watering the pot on Christmas day.

Hi Irena,
We received so many images of Fiddler Beetles, Eupoecila australasiae, in early 2007 that we made it the Bug of the Month in February of that year.  It really is a distinctive beetle that is unlikely to be confused with any other species.

Hi Daniel,
Thank you very much !
And thank you for the great site.
Best wishes for 2010
