Only after the last tree has been cut down.
Only after the last river has been poisoned.
Only after the last fish has been caught.
Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.

Hey, Bugz I m confused...
It may be chafer...

But If it do not have spiny projection on head then
I m sure that its "Scarabaeidae"..... its female..some scarab female do not posses horn..

Umm,well It's not "Scarabaeidae",it's "Scarabaeoidea" or "super-Scarabaeidae" . "Scarabaeidae" are dung beetles. The beetle in the pic it's Melolonthinae.

Yeah it's female,male always have bigger & longer antennae.

Thanks.

I got it in a garden several month ago. I was digging a hole to look for some earwigs, and then this buster came out. So I brought it home ,took picture for it, then I sent it away...

This kind of beetle is familiar in summer of Beijing(suburb and countryside only).

The antennae resemble a maybug :? .
which is a chafer.
