The female looks like a Plectris.

Asunto: Unidentified melolonthine from Peru


Hello scarabs workers,


I am not a specialist on Melolonthinae and I am trying to identify this scarab (see picture).  I think it is probably a Melolonthinae (Macrodactylini).


I would really like to know if anyone has an idea which genus (or species) this is. Look like the second specimen on the left might be a female (no horns).


The data is:  Peru, Pasco reg., Oxapampa prov., Puerto Bermudez dist., 10.4133S 074.9947W   h=860 m.


Many thanks for your help,
