Cyrtothyrea marginalis (Common Dotted Fruit Chafer) Chafer Beetles generally consume fruits and flowers so pollination would be accidental and termed “messy pollination”, brought about while foraging for flowers to eat. Particularly fond of Arum Lilies. Pollinate various Asteraceae and arums. In gardens pollinate various daisy species.

Pollination would thus be accidental and termed “messy pollination”, brought about while foraging in flowers. Pollinate Berzelia, Phylica, Vachellia karroo, various Asteraceae etc.
