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!
