A month ago I founded this very nice beetlle and after a posting that I saw today I decided to share some pictures with you, it was at least 2 inches long, something really interesting regarding it, it’s the defencive position on picture 1.
Thanks for sending us your photos of a Beyer’s Scarab, Chrysina beyeri. It is in the same genus as the image we posted yesterday of a Glorious Scarab. Sightings of Beyer’s Scarab on BugGuide are confined to Arizona. While searching for information on Beyer’s Scarab, we found an informal paper written by Scott McCleve ( chrysina_beyeri ) posted on http://www.zin.ru/animalia/coleoptera/eng/chrysbey.htm
