According to Kim Pullen: "This species is widely distributed and common in some coastal regions, but quite rare in this district."

Author's notes

Two this size and one much smaller. At first thought it was a Fiddler beetle (also present nearby) but realised the marking are quite different. Couldn't find this on CNM or ALA.

Roger, I think this is actually Chlorobapta frontalis according to web site https://www.whatsthatbug.com/2015/01/20/scarab-beetle-australia-chlorobapta-frontalis/ E. scripta has different markings
