Hoping you can identify.
Found on a cruise ship that had travelled from Brisbane in Queensland, prior to this in South Pacific Islands. Nov 28th this yr.
Thanks for your efforts!
This is a Checkered Beetle in the family Cleridae, but we are not certain of the species. There are several similar looking individuals on the Insects of Brisbane website as well as on the Cleridae of Australia site where an image of Trogodendron fasciculatum looks like a very close match.
