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

I can send adult beetles to UK addresses ONLY for the time being, due to the international delays with the coronavirus situation. Any overseas orders of adult beetles will be cancelled.

The listing is for 1x, adult beetle, of a rare PURE BLUE 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 blue colour.

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

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.
