Leaf Beetles of Australia
Family: Chrysomelidae

Here are some of the many leaf beetles to be found throughout Australia.

Some of these images are without names and the first to be published online

These six groups include the largest of the leaf (eating) beetles.

The genera Calomela, Dicranosterna, Paropsis, Paropsisterna, Trachymela and Peltoschema include about 500 species and there are hardly 100 illustrated here.  

It seems like I will have a very long and busy retirement.
