Seeing now what is a Coptommatini (Navomorpha) I think the ID of this beetle is wrong.
Would be pleased to know the genus and species if possible. (Tmesisternini)?

I you can, please post the Tmesisternini to the forum, all is interesting to see from Australia, but with the genus Temnosternus /Temnosternopsis I'm not so much familar because I have'nt see a few types only, and of course there are any new species.

Thank you Andreas for your identification. Last year you determined for me Tmesisternus schaumii Pascoe ssp. from PNG, ESP, Mapuk (posted 06/02/2017). I have another specimen identified as Tmesisternus yorkensis (Fairmaire) from Australia, Iron Range, Cape York, N. Qld, May 4, 1968. =T. schaumii yorkensis (Fairmaire) ? Correct ?
It is surely different and much smaller from the PNG specimen. I can make a photo if you wish. From Australia I also have few Temnosternus, Temnosternopsis, Trigonoptera.

yes, it should be Tmesisternus continentalis Breuning, 1942
I don't agree with the subspecies asignment in Gressitt (1984)
That's the first Tmesisternus I see from Australia
