Soft-winged Flower Beetle
Genus Collops


This Soft-winged Flower beetle resembles the Two-spotted Melyrid except it doesn't have the
 two spots. Most of the beetles with the genus Collops are considered beneficial since the
larvae and adults are known to feed on insects as well as pollen.  This one was in the Kolob
Canyons Overlook of Zion National Park near Cedar City, Utah.  © Carol Davis 6-12-2009
