Christmas Beetles

Christmas Beetles

Despite their name, Christmas Beetles aren't confined to the holiday season. The label "Christmas Beetle" is attributed to the beetle genus Anoplognathus, denoting their appearance in early summer as they search for mates.

While these beetles hold a unique connection to Christmas, their distinctiveness hasn't shielded them from the consequences of urban development. The expansion of housing into grassy woodland areas has resulted in a decline in their population in urban settings.

This summer, you have the opportunity to contribute to the efforts of coleopterists by actively counting Christmas Beetles in your surroundings. Your observations become essential in monitoring and understanding their numbers.

Become part of a community of citizen science enthusiasts and document your Christmas beetle sightings on iNaturalist.org as part of the Christmas Beetle Count project. With already over 10,000 records, your involvement adds valuable insights into the dynamics of Christmas Beetle populations. Join the initiative at https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/christmas-beetle-count.
