Hi there! This chappy was found on the Indian ocean coast of South Africa – do you know if this is a type of stink bug? Thank you for all the wonderful work you do!

Zig-Zag Fruit Chafer

Dear Cat,
This is NOT a Stink Bug.  It is a Scarab Beetle, and more specifically, we identified it as a Zig-Zag Fruit Chafer,
Anisorrhina flavomaculata, thanks to BioDiversity Explorer.  The species is also well represented on iSpot.

Location: KwaZulu Natal, South Africa
