Class: Insecta

Order: Coleoptera

Superfamily: Scarabaeoidea

Family: Scarabaeidae

The family Scarabaeidae as currently defined consists of over 30,000 species of beetles worldwide. The species in this large family are often called scarabs or scarab beetles. The classification of this family is fairly unstable, with numerous competing theories, and new proposals appearing quite often. It is probable that many of the subfamilies listed here will no longer be recognized very much longer, as they will likely be reduced in status below subfamily rank, or elevated to family status (the latter is most likely, e.g., with the family "Melolonthidae" already appearing in some recent classifications). Other families have been removed recently, and are nearly universally accepted (e.g., Pleocomidae, Glaresidae, Glaphyridae, Ochodaeidae, Geotrupidae, Bolboceratidae)
Habitat: Often can be found on the flowers of Elder.
Feeding: Adults feed on the Mimela junii leaves of various wild grasses and wild shrubs, while the larvae feed on roots of various herbaceous plants or living in the accumulation of soil rich in decaying vegetable matter.

Gli Scarabaeidae Latreille, 1802, sono una famiglia dell'ordine dei Coleotteri comprendente più di 20.000 specie, di cui 300 presenti in Europa e 200 in Italia.
Habitat: Spesso si rinvengono sui fiori di Sambuco.
Alimentazione: Gli adulti della Mimela junii si nutrono di foglie di varie piante erbacee spontanee e di arbusti selvatici, mentre le larve si nutrono delle radici di varie piante erbacee oppure vivono negli accumuli di terriccio ricco di sostanze vegetali in decomposizione.

Bonjour Luciano,
Voilà une petite bête que je connais bien aussi! Pendant une messe du dimanche à l'extérieur il y en avait tout un bataillon qui volait autour de nos têtes. Mais attention, pas facile à photographier! Tu as réussi, bien sûr!
Bon dimanche et beaucoup de clients dans ton café!

Ciao Luciano,
A strong and impressive macro shot of this little bug.The shiny colours are shown well with good sharp focus, well done MF.

Ciao Luciano. Bene la novità ma oggi ci andava il giallo/rosso.....! Comunque sia un lavoro eccellente per dettaglio e nitidezza che con questi colori cangianti rischiava di andare a farsi benedire.

Ciao Luciano,
Congratulations on this TN first, a fine capture of this small Scarabid beetle. The dorsal POV is shown with exact focusing and sharpness with only the legs slightly OOF.
The leaf that it is on provides a fine BG in a pleasing composition.
Thanks and have a good week,

Hola Luciano

Perfecta macro y perfecta nitidez. Bonitos colores metalicos, y buena composición.

Un saludo de Antonio
