Cetonia aurata L Rose chafer

Larvae of this minor pest feed mainly on the roots of grasses, but they will sometimes also attack those of crops planted in recently ploughed-up grassland. Individuals, which develop over 2 or 3 years, are whitish and up to 30 mm long, with the head, legs and body hairs reddish; also, the body hairs are arranged in distinct, transverse rows. The adult chafers are 1420 mm long and metallic golden-green with wavy, silvery markings; the underside of the body is purplish-red. Adults occur from late May onwards and often feed in the daytime on open blossoms of Rosaceae, UmbeUiferae and many other plants.
