Grapevine Beetle
July 18, 2009
Found this 3 cm-long beetle a few days ago in a patch of clover on my lawn. From your site I determined that it’s a Grapevine Beetle. I have no grapes, but some of the neighbours probably do.

Hi Ray,
Your identification of the Grapevine Beetle, Pelidnota punctata.  This species ranges in color from a very pale yellow to a rusty red, but the spots remain a consistent identification feature.

    I think I’ve just found two of these beetles at the edge of our drive. We do actually have some wild grapevines within 50feet. We live in southern Dutchess County, NY
