Many beetles have a preferred host plant. they can be beneficial, assisting with the pollination of plants, the germination of seeds, also as the biological control agents of invasive weeds. what do you think this little guy is up to? genus altica corrusca (pictured) congregating with his ‘buddies’ by the hundreds on the acaena novae-zelandiae (commonly known as bidgee widgee or biddy-biddy) at the briars today. so pretty.
