Euphoria fulgida, the Emerald Euphoria - captive bred generation F2 is now emerging. The original stock was collected in Kansas, from thistle flowers. They measure around 17 mm, on average. This species has a long larval diapause after making a cocoon. The cocoons are made using clay soil - they don't seem to be able to form cocoons properly using organic substrate, as Gymnetis thula does. Interestingly, the larvae grow to a much larger size than would seem necessary to produce an adult beetle of this size.
Euphoria fulgida, the Emerald Euphoria - captive bred, generation F1. The initial breeding stock was collected from thistle flowers in the Southern Great Plains. Adults are surprisingly long-lived. These emerged a year ago, and are still doing well.
