Scarab Beetle

Leucopholis sp.

Description:

Small dark beetle covered with thousands of tiny white spots.

Habitat:

Found outside resting on the tiles.

Notes:

We call them "labog-labog" in our local dialect and they are common around March to June. We used to shake our mango trees and dozens will fall off. These days they are not much found in our home, one probable reason was that the tree was cut down. Still, they are occasionally found in the area and in other trees. They are also a delicacy but I had not tried them yet. This species might be Leucopholis irrorata but I'm still not sure.
