Upon donation, Blathers the curator will say:

"They're called beetles, wot? The lugs of the insect world. Insects with armor plating on their backs, you know. Their armor, it...opens up, revealing wings, which they use to fly. It's really quite unnatural. Then, there's that thin membrane-like covering where their heads connect to their bodies. Most foul!"

Further information

The Drone Beetle is known as Kanabun カナブン in Japanese. Their wings are often emerald green, but some take a more bronzy or citrine tinge.

Close relatives to this species, the Dicronorrhina genus of beetles has very distinctive front legs which are very long and only seen in male individuals. They are considered good beginner species in breeding and raising.

Like many other Scarab Beetles in the family Scarabaeidae, they are colorful and herbivorous, sometimes reaching pest levels when large groups swarm together in one place.
