Anisoplia agricola is a species of shining leaf chafers in the family Scarabaeidae.[1]


Anisoplia agricola can reach a length of 11–13 millimetres (0.43–0.51 in). Coloration of the elytrae is quite variable, ranging from greenish black to yellow or reddish with cross-shaped black marks.[2][3][4]


These beetles mainly feed on wild grasses, but can damages crops. They live in steppe and forest-steppe areas.[4]

This species is present in most of Europe, in Asia Minor in the Caucasus and in Central Asia from Western Siberia and Kazakhstan up to Mongolia.[2][5]
