Rose Chafer - Macrodactylus

Rose Chafer - Macrodactylus
Nelsonville, Athens County, Ohio, USA
July 18, 2005
Size: 11mm
I don't recall the exact area where I found this specimen. I'm sorry that I'm not much help.

Moved from Rose Chafer. This could be either eastern species, can't really tell from this shot.

Don't Frass
I think we should keep this photo of the Rose Chafer, since there are no images from Ohio in the guide of this species. I edited it, so the quality is improved. Not a bad photo though!

However I still don't like the way this image looks, but if you think it should stay thats fine with me.

Macrodactylus subspinosus - Rose Chafer

Great ID
The other images are of great quaility with such detail, Great ID on these really poor images, thank you very much Jim. These are going to frass.
