Fiddler Beetle

Hi christjohn,
Each year when it is summer in the southern hemisphere and winter in the northern hemisphere, we receive a few images of Fiddler Beetles,
Eupoecila australasiae, from Australia.  We believe the common name Fiddler Beetle is a reference to the markings on the beetle’s body which can be likened to the markings on a violin.

thank you Daniel
regards from down under
