Title: Re: [Aroid-l] dermestid beetles and pollination
It should not be surprising that dermestid beetles are attracted to something having the smell of rotten flesh. They are often used by taxidermists to clean the flesh from bones before mounting. Note correct spelling of “dermestid” and “Dermestes marmoratus”.

Here in California I have found scarabs of genus Hoplia (Hoplia dispar?) pollinating Philodendron Zantedeschia, Arum, Dracunculus, and Arisaema. I have also found The dermested beetle Dermested marmoratus pollinating Dracunulus, Helicodiceros, and Arum.
