Euphoria sepulcralis sepulcralis (Dark Flower Scarab).
| I found this beetle on a lantana flower. After moving the flower around to get a better photo, the beetle fell off and pretended to be dead. It is a Dark Flower Scarab (Euphoria sepulcralis sepulcralis). There are four recognized subspecies. The UF site refers to it as one of the "most frequently submitted" beetles. |
