Julius and other I have been finding a possible pollinator up north for Alocasias Colocasia and possibly other aroids. It seems the Japanese beetle maybe making it's way into a few spaths. They seem to eat the inside of the Spath on most aroids and sometimes fall to the lower chamber were they pollinate the inflorescence.  They ate odd grooves inside the spath and it seemed all that I have found look to be intoxicated or close to death. The beetles are covered in pollen and barely move possibly from struggling inside the spath for hours?  I have seen this only a few times this year in Alocasia Colocasia and Dracunculus vulgaris.
