Hi Kim, Gremlins seem to be at work, since I got an email saying you'd suggested this is R. manicatus, and yet the heading is still R. aeneus and there's no comment from you. Bit weird. We checked it against Steve's sighting of R. manicatus at Bournda and that looks almost black. This was a very good match to something identified as R. aeneus on the website Max cites above. Jackie

Oh, OK, suggestion just materialised now. I jumped the gun. But can you have a look at R. aeneus, or is this a synonym?

The red legs and more rounded sides of the body suggest this is R. manicatus rather than R. aeneus. And of the two subspecies of manicatus, R. m. manicatus has the upper surface black with red, whereas R. m. montanus has it green.

Hi Jackie. No gremlins - I suggested R. manicatus manicatus (already in the ALCW list), but withdrew it when I realised this one was not that subspecies. The iNaturalist record (from Taree) is correctly identified as R. aeneus, but the Project Noah one (from Victoria) is R. manicatus montanus.

Hi Kim - I see you've created the species. If you'll confirm R. manicatus montanus I'll put the photos up in the "define species" slots.
cheers, max.
