Author's notes

A google search of Paropsisterna and Paropsis images brought me to Paropsis pantherina, but not knowing if this was a current name or not I didn't like to add it to our list. Feeding on Eucalyptus globoidea juvenile foliage.

Jackie, it does match P. pantherina, which is listed in AFD. However, this name may be found to represent merely a variety of the very variable P. obsoleta.

Hi Kim,
Yeah, I thought one of the discussions on Bowerbird or somewhere was implying they were synonyms.
