Common name - Giant Flower Beetle "Pure Orange"
Scientific name - Mecynorrhina torquata ugandensis "Pure Orange"

The listing is for 1x beetle larva, of a rare PURE ORANGE bloodline of a giant species of Flower Beetle from Africa.

These are CAPTIVE BRED in my collection, with this stock originating from Uganda.

Normal adults of this species are green and orange but this is a bloodline that has been selectively bred over multiple generations to isolate the orange colour.

Further on from the regular orange striped bloodline, this bloodline has been selectively bred on top, for adults that lack the white stripes completely, making them completely orange.

The adult beetles feed on a variety of fruits such as banana, apple, pear, peach and watermelon. The larvae feed on decaying wood and leaf litter.
