Peter Clausen Posted June 1, 2010 Report Share Posted June 1, 2010 I caught this beetle while blacklighting in Arizona, in July of 2009. Unfortunately, it was just a very nice male (so no reproduction). In the video, you can see a specimen of Chrysina beyeri that was eaten by the P. truncatus. The predator chewed a hole into the victim to feed.
