    And best eaten raw. You might as well throw it away, it's ruined

    Common woodgrub, however not often seen in white cypress, must be a Queensland thing

    If at first you don't succeed, give something else a go. Life is far too short to waste time trying.

    It is the larvae of the jewel beetle.

    Check this link http://utenti.romascuola.net/bups/jewel.htm

    My father used to mill cypress around Condobolin and jewel beetles were always a (minor) problem.
