Scarab beetles

Family Scarabaeidae, Rutela lineola


I found several of these gorgeous beetles scattered by some shrubs, trying to mate. Although they have the same basic color, its pattern is slightly different from one beetle to the other.

São Rutela lineola. Encontrei um há alguns dias atras; Eles são considerados pragar de roseiras; mas são muito bem vindos em minhas roseiras. :)
