Leucocelis sp. “Flower Chafer” (Cetoniinae) Scarabeidae

Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

This adorable little flower chafer is a relative of the famously massive Goliath Beetle.

Update! This appears to be a flower chafer in the genus Leucocelis. Likely Leucocelis niansana. Thanks for the ID help!

This is definitely not the Pacific Northwest, but in case you’d like more natural history photos and articles, check out my work over at SoMuchScience!
