We've had two Christmas beetles near our apartment next to Anzac Parade area in 
Campbell.  They seemed to be a bit smaller than the ones we're used to but no 
doubt what they were.

Morning all,

A post on Facebook from a banding colleague in northern NSW has me now asking 
the same question - has anyone seen any Christmas Beetles this year? To date I 
have not seen any and have put this down to the very dry conditions we are 
having, and have had for a while. Anyone seen any in the local area?
