Hi Roger. I'm curious at this specimen of Goniaea opomaloides, which has an arched pronotum, whereas the other sightings show the pronotum to be fairly flat. What is the difference between this and Goniaea australasiae?

The pronotum is not as arched as the typical G. australasiae. If we could see the hind tibiae they would be bluish for opolamoides and yellowish for australasiae. Maybe we should relegate this male to Goniaea sp.
