Subfamily Trichiinae (Scarabaeidae) - atlas of chafers of Russia

The Trichiini are a tribe of the scarab beetle family (Scarabaeidae), though historically they were often classified as a subfamily, Trichiinae.[1] The conspicuous bee beetles (Trichius) are probably the best-known genus in Europe.

They vary in size from 6 to 65 mm [1] and can be distinguished from Cetoniini by having covered epimeres, and lateral edges of the elytra which are not trimmed.

The adults feed on sugar-rich secretions of stems, leaves, fruits and flowers of different plants. Most larvae develop in rotten wood.
