This genus of scarab beetle contains at least 36 described species in a dazzling array of colors. Almost all are unique to Australia.
After spending their larval stage underground eating grass roots, adults emerge in the southern hemisphere’s summer to feed on eucalyptus leaves. Their appearance has long been synonymous with the December holidays.
Christmas Beetles were once so numerous that huge tree branches were said to bend from their sheer mass. Due to habitat loss in a rapidly changing world, these beautiful insects are dwindling in number.
Don't forget to subscribe to the Bug Box in the future, so you never miss out.
