Nice image of it taking off! I can't suggest or confirm a genus on this one Max. It's a big family and there are several genera with this colouration. Also, I think the head on yours looks more elongate than in type images of Conoderus on ALA. How about we just take it to family: Elateridae ?

Hi Kerri, I initially found an image in Roger Farrows "Insects of South eastern Australia" (Click beetles Conoderus sp - P125) which looked promising. However I've just done a little further web image trawling myself and I agree it is a difficult area.
