Hi Jay,
While we are not sure exactly what species or even what family of beetle this Kenyan beauty is, we do know it is not a scarab. When we wrote to Eric Eaton, he informed us it isn’t a beetle, but a true bug. Here is his response: ” Daniel: The ‘beetles’ from Kenya are also Hemipterans:-) They are shield bugs, probably in the genus Calidea. You’re doing great! Eric”
