flamboyant flower beetle - description

The flamboyant flower beetle or striped love beetle, is one of the most brightly colored members of the scarab beetle family. Their shells seem to have a prismatic quality, refracting the ambient light to give the green of their carapace a rainbow tint. The flower beetle lives in the rainforests of Africa, where it feeds on the nectar and pollen of flowers. The larvae of the flower beetle live in decaying wood, feeding on dead wood and leaf litter. Adults reach lengths of 25-40 mm. Their trademark Y shaped horn is displayed by males to fight over females.
