Name This Beetle

I don't know her name, but she's cute as a bug!

Can't find a match in my bug book.

A friend told me she is female. And a flower eater. Anyone know her name?

BTW, these photos were taken with an iphone.

He is called KANABUN. KANA means metal and BUN refers to the sound they make when they fly. They have folked antenas. I used to play with them when I was a kid.

Have a look at:
