The Phyllopertha horticola is a beetle of the family Scarab Beetles (Scarabaeidae), and is also called chafer beetle. The beetle is somewhat similar to the related June beetle, yet it is smaller, and more hairy on the elytra. The elytra are reddish colored, the rest of the body is black with a green-blue, metallic sheen.
