תיאור

This beetle has just emerged from the pupal stage. Its exoskeleton will harden over the next few hours, the flight wings will expand, the characteristic black spots will appear and the light areas on the head and pronotum will whiten. This is the soft, delicate, teneral stage, when all insects are at their most vulnerable.
