Description

This specimen keys to Arsipoda rugulosa at https://books.google.com/books?id=NjUVAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA438&lpg=PA438&dq=Arsipoda+chrysis&source=bl&ots=iOGyPZT6jt&sig=C1qxh9nj5e20B0wLmlr9YytJ_mU&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjr2Mbv9JjKAhVMKCYKHdXdCKwQ6AEILzAE#v=onepage&q=Arsipoda%20chrysis&f=false

It is known only from Melbourne, and is identified by "Corpus metallicum aut nigrum" (body metallic or black) and "thorax et elytra rugulosa".

This species differs in that it has distinct creases (hence rugulosa), instead of columns of small spots or otherwise. The colouration is listed to be greenish, coppery or brass-like.

So it seems good to me...
