German: Purzelkäfer/ Goldstaub-Laubkäfer English: ?

Hoplia argentea


A very beautiful beetle, likes to eat the pollen of wild carrot. The color changes in sunlight.


If it is too warm or too cold they just hide underground. I often found them sitting on wild carrot or Scabiosa columbaria ( pincushion flower ?) .
