I think this is a melanic variety of P. variicollis

Thanks Martin and welcome to Canberra Nature Map.
I will leave it for someone more expert than me to confirm your suggestion.

I am not convinced that its the melanic form of variicollis. There are a number of all black species of Paropsisterna in our area. Were there any normal colour forms of variicollis in the vicinity?

I have several sightings of P. variicollis nearby, the nearest one is:
Leaf beetle (Chrysomelidae) Paropsisterna variicollis (Eucalyptus variegated beetle) on 21 Jan 2015
But if we have local black species we can stick with Paropsisterna sp.
