giant beetle

Erotylus giganteus

Description:

With its approximately 3 cm (1") long, it is not so much of a giant, but it is very pretty with its red dots.

Habitat:

Amazon jungle.

Notes:

I saw a photo of Erotylus giganteus with yellow dots from Venezuela. In fact, I'm not sure that the one on the photo belongs to the same species. Anyone can confirm (or not)?
