Spotted Flower Chafer - Neorrhina punctatum

This is the first time I have encountered this species in our garden, the Spotted Flower Chafer, (Neorrhina punctatum). The beetle is pale brown in colour with many large black dots on its thorax and wing covers. Flower chafers feed on nectar and are often found among the petals of flowers, I found this one feeding on some field daisies.
