By LotaLota
Green Rose Chafer (Cetonia aurata), is a beetle 20 millimetres long, that has a metallic colaured green and a distinct V-shaped scutellum. The scutellum is the small V-shaped area between the wing cases. In wing cases may show several small white lines. Rose chafers are capable of fast flight; they fly with their wing cases down. They feed on pollen, nectar, and flowers. They can be found among flowers blossom on warm sunny days from May until August.
