Green June Beetle Update

Green June Beetle

A student told me about being swarmed by large green beetles at an athletic practice. Having just posted a picture of Cotinus nitida the Green June Beetle immediately came to mind. However, the Purdue campus has previously had swarms of Euphoria herbacea in summer of 2013. Today while walking on campus I encountered dozens of Cotinus nitida. Apparently, the current cool rainy weather agrees with them.
