Possibly Paropsis aegrota. I have seen adults of this species near these larvae.

I note that my sighting Leaf beetle (Chrysomelidae) Paropsini sp. (tribe) (Unidentified paropsine leaf beetle) on 10 Jan 2019 also at the Pinnacle has been confirmed as Paropsini sp. (tribe).

The beetle in sighting Unidentified on 10 Jan 2019 was on the same trees as the confirmed sighting 4184496. Could both these larvae be of this beetle?

I think the unidentified is a species of Paropsisterna. I have had a look on the internet but not found anything similar. Chris Reid may know. However its larvae are too small to be connected to the above

The unidentified has been confirmed as a Paropsis and I have Identified it as P. obsoleta from pictures on the internet. There are pictures of larvae similar to the above as P. variolosa.
