A lovely Green Beetle in Kadoorie Farm

January 4, 2019

ONe of the reasons i love wandering around Kadoorie Farm in the New Territories is the amazing bio-diversity, so you never know what you may find. Case in point, was this lovely green beetle that we found by the roadside.

 This is a Protaetia which is a genus of beetles of the family Scarabeidae, occurring primarily in Asia, and containing over 300 species.
And I am pretty sure that this is 
Protaetia orientalis.

 

 lets break it down....with a full scientific classification or taxonavigation, as they call it.

 

Familia: Scarabaeidae
Subfamilia: Cetoniinae
Tribus: Cetoniini 
Subtribus: Cetoniina 
Genus: Protaetia
