Flower beetles are a group of scarab beetles that belong to the subfamily Cetoniinae.

They are known for their bright colors, often metallic, and their flattened shape.

They are also called fruit and flower chafers, flower scarabs, or rose chafers.

Flower beetles are mostly diurnal, meaning they are active during the day.

They visit flowers for pollen and nectar.

Some species also feed on fruits.

They are good pollinators, helping plants reproduce.

Flower beetles have a worldwide distribution, with about 4,000 species.

They vary in size, shape, and color, but they usually have slender antennae and legs, and a narrow neck.

The elytra, or the hard wing covers, are often cut off at the end, exposing the last segment of the abdomen.

Some species are of interest as biological control agents, as they can eat the eggs or larvae of pests.

Flower beetles are an important part of the ecosystem, as they pollinate flowers and recycle organic matter.

The flower beetle is a common name for a group of scarab beetles that belong to the subfamily Cetoniinae.
They are distributed worldwide and are brilliantly coloured, with many iridescent species in the tropics.
They are diurnal and visit flowers for pollen and nectar, or to browse on the petals.
Some species also feed on fruit.
The group is also called fruit and flower chafers, or flower scarabs.
They have rounded, convex backs and their antennae are visible from above.
The larvae live and feed in decaying plant matter or soil.
Some of the largest beetles on Earth, such as the African goliath beetle, are flower beetles.
They are generally harmless in the garden, but may cause damage to some flowering plants or fruits.

Flower beetles are usually brightly coloured, often metallic, and somewhat flattened in shape.

They have visible antennae, hidden mandibles, and truncated elytra (wing covers) that expose the pygidium (the last abdominal segment).

Flower beetles conical fore coxae (the basal segment of the leg) and transverse mid coxae.

These insects have simple tarsal claws (the terminal segment of the leg) of subequal size.

Some examples of flower beetles are:
  • The green rose chafer (Cetonia aurata), which is green with white spots and feeds on roses and other flowers.

  • The African goliath beetle (Goliathus giganteus), which is one of the largest insects in the world, reaching up to 10 cm (4 inches) in length.
    It is white with black lines and has brown elytra.
    Goliathus giganteus feeds on fruits and sap.

  • The Sumatran flower beetle (Hetorrhina dohrni), which is one of the most beautiful insects, with a colour that changes with shifts in light from black and gold-green to deep orange-red.
    It feeds on flowers and fruits.
