Our Golden Wattles Acacia pycnantha are alive with insectivorous birds at present and a close look shows why. I’d love to know more about these beetles. It wasn’t until I looked at the photos on my computer that I saw some even smaller arthropods enjoying the bounty of the flowers.
PS: Thanks to Bowerbird most of these beetles have been confirmed as belong to the family Tenebrionidae.
