Anyone know what this is?
Very nice beetle!
Y'all are fantastic. Thanks for the help! I'm going to go with Trigonopeltastes delta for now.
A Beetle that is out to eat the flower not just take nectar!
There is no way that is a bumblebee. If it is, then it is the first bald bumblebee I have ever seen. Lol
Found it when I searched "yellow triangle beetle".. Funny! Haha.
It's definitely some form of Scarabaeidae in my opinion, I agree on that, the bumble beetle doesn't match the marking enough for me though. That's some fascinating marking-- I'd expect that to be in plain sight of texts, but I haven't been able to find a match either. Still looking.
I did not find an exact match for your image, but the head, antenna and body shape suggest some sort of Bumble Beetle.
