White Scarab Beetle (Cyphochilus insulanus, Melolonthinae)


Cyphochilus is a genus of beetle with an unusually bright white body, occurring in Southeast Asia. The beetle is a whiter colour than paper or even milk teeth. The whiteness of its body is caused by a thin layer of a highly reflective natural photonic solid in its scales.
