Abstract

The third instar larva and pupa of Ancognatha scarabaeoides Erichson are described for the first time, and adults of both sexes are redescribed, to support the study of the soil white grub species assemblage in Colombia. Data on the phenology and distribution of A. scarabaeoides are included for some localities in the departments of Antioquia, Caldas and Tolima, Colombia, where it was found associated with potato fields.
