grapevine beetle

Pelidnota punctata


Grapevine Beetle, aka Spotted June Beetle, aka Spotted Pelidnota. Significantly bigger than your usual "june/may" beetles. This one was at least 1/2 wide and 2 inches long. Tan coloring with some dark markings and a divot near the wing base. Antenna not present? Or seen? Drawn to porch light.


Suburban Area, Columbus Ga. Drawn to porch light. No grapevines present that I'm aware of, but other notes indicate virginia creeper as a host plant, and we do have that.
