Marble Fuit Chafer Beetle Porphyronota hebreae Scarabaeidae

Ted my good friend from Beetles In The Bush was spot on with this one. Congrats!! :)

This is quite a large fellow, about 1 inch in length and I am sure he will have no problem hiding from predators with these colors.
They also belong to the Scarab beetle family and are found in subtropical areas.
