Anthidium manicatum
Identified as Megachile on Bowerbird by Karen Retra: "Hi Mitch, I hope I'm wrong, but this looks to me to be a European wool carder bee Anthidium manicatum. The web will give you images and some papers about them, including that apparently it is "the most widely distributed unmanaged bee in the world" and considered a threat to native bee species in other places. Yikes! See what you think."

This is the pupa of the moth Hylaeora eucalypti, the specimen in observation 58906263 dated 7SEP20.
I collected this specimen a few days after initial observation and supplied it with leaves from the same tree. It dropped from its leaves after 10 days. Placed it in a container with leaf litter and some soil where it made a cocoon among the leaf litter. Cocoon cut open to photograph pupa and returned to cocoon (sewn closed) and awaiting emergence.

And then I checked the original description (Houston, T.F. 1981. A revision of the Australian hylaeine bees (Hymenoptera: Colletidae). II. Australian Journal of Zoology Supplementary Series 80: 1-128) – and it seems a match!

Subsequently, Michael Batley agreed with ID.
