Featured species of Scarabaeidae

Click on the buttons below to view the pages I have created for each species of scarab featured in this web site.  There are additional navigation buttons on the species pages so that you can move through to the other pages from there as well.  The species shown were selected from among the many varieties of Scarabaeidae to illustrate the various forms and colors in which beetles of this family occur.  The sizes given for each species are based on actual body length (including horns if present), and exclude leg span.
