Delta Flower Scarab – Trigonopeltastes delta
Sorry – we lost our rights to display these images.
The delta flower scarab is also commonly known as the “D beetle.” The triangle on the beetle’s pronotum has been suggested as mimicry of the markings on paper wasps in the genus Polistes. The species is diurnal, that is, it is active during daylight. Most of its activities revolve around flowers – they eat pollen and mate almost exclusively on flower blossoms.
