Oxythyrea funesta en (J.B. Marimurtra)

Es una especie de coleóptero polífago de la familia Scarabaeidae, subfamilia Cetoniinae. Se distribuye por Europa central y meridional, Asia Menor y Oriente Medio. Es uno de los coleópteros florícolas más frecuentes en la Península Ibérica.
Es un insecto fitófago que presenta generalmente irisaciones de color cobre y manchas blancas muy irregulares. Es muy abundante sobre flores de muchos tipos; con frecuencia destruye las yemas florales de las vides y los árboles frutales. Las larvas se alimentan de las raíces. Al volar hace un ruido parecido al de la abeja.

Hallo Jose
What a lovely presentation. I just love how the crown of the flower peep at me and how the petals forms the shape of a fan or one can even associate it with the rays of the sun. It is a pleasant macro with beautiful details on both the flower and the beetle, but I must admit I like the way you show us the flower. It is very artisticly done. I like it!. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
