Emerald eucalyptus chafer (Xylonichus eucalypti)

I’m trying to improve my very poor knowledge of formal names of insects. I think this is correct. Found in Sydney Northern Beaches, September 11 2016. Local trees Angophora Costata. It looks like the beetle in these links however the locations conflict:

Any supporting info would be much appreciated.
