Re: Scarab Beetle


Pam's descreiption sounds like 'June bugs' to me. I thought Japanese beetles had more gold in them. The beetle we discussed earlier turned out to be a Scarab beetle.

I think those are the Japanese beetles Pam. Scarab beetles are usually
smaller than that I think. Someone correct me if I'm wrong please.

Subject: [CHAT] Scarab Beetle

Remember the scarab beetle we discussed a few months ago? Well I just
got
some interesting information regarding it from our extension agent, Bill
Wyatt
. It follows:

Bill,
This beetle, Euphoria sepulchralis (Fabricius) is in the  family
Scarabaeidae.  "The adults may be found on flowers and feign  death when
touched."  Beetles in this genus are often called bumble  flower beetles
because of their color, pubescence and they act like  bumblebees.  This
one
does not have a common name but a closely related  species is called the
bumblebee flower beetle or brown fruit  chafer.

I thought everybody would enjoy the additional info.
