The highest latitude record on Nature Map! Hopefully a beetle expert will be along shortly to ID this one.

Hi Aaron, I tried to suggest Paropsisterna species but the suggestion was not accepted. Could you make me a Moderator for this area. Also the @user name did not work.

Hi @AlisonMilton, please give that a go now. Note: can you please log out and log back in to pick up your new privileges for this region. Cheers Aaron.

Hi Tammy, This is the closest I can ID as there are a number of all black leaf beetles. Alison

Thanks Aaron, but the @user name link still does not work for me on this site, or any site. Regards
