Glorious Scarab

This listing is for a single unsexed larva of Chrysina gloriosa (formerly called Plusiotis gloriosa). Larvae feed on decaying hardwood substrate (sold separately). These are considered by many to be the most beautiful beetle in the US. Available as second instar larvae (L2). They go through 3 larval instars (L1, L2, L3) before pupating and emerging as adults. Larval lifespan is about a year on average. These larvae are well along their way, but typically they would mature out in the summer months.

More photos at Bugguide.net where they simply and uniquely describe the identification of this beetle as "unmistakable".
