Euphoria is a genus of scarab beetles in the subfamily Cetoniinae, the flower or fruit chafers. They are native to the Americas, where they are distributed from Canada to Argentina. They are most diverse in Mexico and Central America.[1] As of 2012, there are 59 species in the genus.[2]
Description and biology

Euphoria species can be highly variable in color and pattern making species identification difficult.[3]

The larvae are generally found buried a few centimeters deep in soil rich in organic matter such as compost, dung, animal burrows, packrat middens, and ant nests.[1] In at least some species, the pupa develops in a subterranean cell with a thin wall made of feces mixed with soil.[1] Some species overwinter as adults, and others as larvae.[1]
