Description

Cheirotonotus jansoni, China

This species can also be found in the Nighttime insects section under the theme A time for everyone/Nighttime, specimen number 20 (country of origin: China).

Curator's pick

This large scarab is known as the long-armed beetle because of the long front legs of the males. Their legs are equipped with a very special receptive organ: hairlike feelers that sense sap running from injured trees. These insects, especially the males, love to suck up the tree sap as nourishment.
