Southern false wireworm

Gonocephalum macleayi

The southern false wireworm (Gonocephalum spp.) grows to about 20 mm in length, and has similar body colours and marking to the large false wireworm. Adults are generally dark brown-grey, oval beetles, which sometimes have a coating of soil on the body. Adults have the edges of the body flanged, hence the common name "pie-dish" beetles.
