Gnorimella is a genus of uncommon scarab beetle in the family Scarabaeidae. There is only one species in this genus, Gnorimella maculosa, also known as the maculate flower scarab.[1] Its name refers to its spotted (maculate) patterning. It is 15.2 mm in length.[2] This species prefers a habitat close to deciduous woodland,[3] where it sometimes buzzes around dogwood or viburnum flowers.[1] It can be found in eastern North America.[4]
