More about this vulnerable species:
As its habitat reduces the Noble Chafer beetle is becoming increasingly rare and is classified as Vulnerable here, which means it has a very high risk of extinction in the wild.
This beautiful beetle prefers traditional orchards that contain mature fruit trees of 50 to 80 years old. These sites are often cleared as the trees are reach the end of their productive life.
In Britain, the species has been rare for the past century and is a Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) species with organisations such as the People’s Trust for Endangered Species taking action to save them.
