Scarab beetles

Tabs group

Description

These typically stout, broad beetles have an elongated or oval shaped body, and come in a variety of colours. Their antennae are clubbed and tipped with leaf-like plates called lamellae, which can be drawn into a compact ball.

Life cycle

Scarab beetle larvae, called grubs, are C-shaped. When grubs are fully grown, they enter the pupa stage, after which they emerge as adults.
