Miksicus acuminatus A Collage This is one of two nice Cetoniinae I saw in Yogya&#039;s Taman Sari Water Castle. It seems to be Miksicus acuminatus (aka Urbania acuminatus) but I did not collect the specimen for genital examination and I&#039;m no expert for these, let alone in that part of the world, so correction is always welcome. The other one is here:<br />

Classification is a bit cumbersome on Cetoniinae as some workers will have them as a family Cetoniidae, others as Cetoniinae under Scarabaeidae. Cetoniidae,Cetoniinae,Coleoptera,Geotagged,Indonesia,Java,Miksicus,Miksicus acuminata,Miksicus acuminatus,Scarabaeidae,Urbania" /></a></figure><br />
