Beetle Mug


Talk about beetle mania. This 11-ounce, white ceramic mug is a real eye-opener in the morning—or anytime. It features real specimens from our research collection.


The Ten-lined June beetle (Polyphylla decemlineata) is found in the western United States and Canada. The adults have amazingly layered antennae that look like antlers when extended. The large surface area help detect pheromones, chemicals used by insects to communicate. You might see the adults come to your porch light on warm summer evening.
