⨂ Larvae - "Violet" Giant Flower Beetle, (Mecynorrhina ugandensis)
Common name - Giant Flower Beetle
Scientific name - Mecynorrhina torquata ugandensis "Violet"
The listing is for 1x beetle larva, 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. These have been selected further on top for blue adults that have violet highlights on their wings.
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.
