Cetonidae / Flower Beetles

Flower Beetles

Flower beetles come in lots of different sizes, some have ornamental head horns and others have glorious colors. So you can start a collection of these, or build a collection family or country or of just a few of your favorites! In this collection of Flower Beetles (my own) I arranged favorites from Tanzania. Males are drama kings with fancy headhorns but I also like to display females to show sexual differences. Really, there isn't a right or wrong way to build a collection, just get started today! Beetles are very easy to re-hydrate and pose (mount) in any position.  View my videos on how to rehydrate and mount beetles
