Phyllophaga species of vermont



Phyllophaga Is a genus of beetle commonly known as may beetles. Many of the beetles in this genus need to be dissected to identify to species. Both male and female specimens are useful for identification. This post will eventually be a guide to the Phyllophaga species found in Vermont. As I find more species I will add more images and species to this list.
