Trichius gallicus - From Gallia Seeing that we didn't have any Trichius gallicus from France, I figured I'd dig one up. Old photo, not the best, but at least it also shows a variation in the colour pattern on the elytra that we didn't have here yet :o) "Cetoniidae",Cetoniinae,France,French Flower Chafer,Geotagged,Scarabaeidae,Scarabaeoidea,Trichius,Trichius gallicus,Trichius zonatus,nl: Penseelkever (gallicus) Click/tap to enlarge Country intro

Trichius gallicus is a beetle species belonging to the family Scarabaeidae, subfamily Cetoniinae.

The sides of the chest and the back of the abdomen of Trichius species are covered with a conspicuous pubescence. Head and pronotum are black, while the elytra are yellowish, crossed by a few black bands, giving the beetles more or less the general appearance of a Bumble bee. Hence the popular name of Bee beetles or Brush beetles for Trichius species as a group.
