Gymnetis thula, 27 April 2013

Gymnetis thula, the Harlequin flower beetle;
Lake county, Florida (27 April 2013).

A fabulously strange and ornate Harlequin flower beetle loitering abut the interior of Lake county, Florida. In the United States, this species appears to mostly be limited to Florida, Louisiana and Texas. This is, to date, the only individual I’ve seen, and it was a sight to behold.
