Ancita crocogaster, body length 10mm
This is a small longicorn beetle, with body length only about 10mm. We found in Mt Coot-tha on new shoots of a small Acacia tree during late summer March 2008. The beetle was very slow moving, walking around on plants because of our disturbed, drop onto the ground after we took a few photos. Please also check this page for more information and pictures.

This is a small Longicorn Beetle. It is black in colour with white doted-lines pattern. The femur of all its legs are covered with dense white hairs. There are hairs on its long antenna too.
