Abstract

The Cetoniinae (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) genus Ichnestoma Gory & Percheron, 1833 currently comprises 13 described species and is endemic to South Africa. The species I. stobbiai Holm, 1992 is thought to occur in a very restricted area in and around Gauteng Province. Unlike most cetoniine larvae, the larvae of this species usually occur in dolomitic to cherty, well-drained soils. Here we briefly explain the conservation issues surrounding this species and describe its larvae and pupae.
