Beetle Travel Mug
Natural history buffs will love this striking travel mug featuring the Ten-lined June beetle (Polyphylla decemlineata). This scarab beetle is found in the western United States and Canada, and can also be found drawn to your porch light on a warm summer evening. The adults have amazingly layered antennae that look like antlers when extended. The large surface area helps detect pheromones, chemicals used by insects to communicate.
Beetles are a group of insects that form the order Coleoptera, which is strongly represented in our entomology collection of more than 1 million specimens.
This 15-ounce stainless steel travel mug has a black plastic lid and keeps beverages hot while on-the-go.
