Paropsis is a genus of Chrysomelidae, commonly referred to as tortoise beetles, which includes over 70 described species.[3] Their small size, bright colours and patterns, and roughly hemispherical shape cause them to be mistaken for beetles in the family Coccinellidae (ladybirds).[4] They are distributed across Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.[5] They primarily feed on Eucalyptus but there are a few that feed on Baeckea, Kunzea and Leptospermum. Species within this genus are noted as pests. For example, Paropsis charybdis is a pest of Eucalyptus in New Zealand.[6]
