Beautifully detailed and colored vintage lithograph of insects.

Polyphylla fullo is a beetle belonging to the Scarabaeidae, Melolonthinae subfamily.
Polyphylla fullo is the largest of the European Melolonthinae, attaining a length of 38 mm, and certainly one of the most beautiful species of beetles. The body is robust and convex and more or less reddish brown or blackish. It is covered with fine white pubescence which forms elegant marbled spots. The adult lives and feed on the foliage of the pines, while the larvae live on Graminaceae and Cyperaceae. Polyphylla fullo is found in North Africa and Europe. It occurs most frequently in central and southern Europe, but it is almost everywhere rare. Its northern boundary is the south of Sweden, the eastern Balkans and the Caucasus.

The size of the print: 10,6" x 7,5" (27 x 19 cm) including its border.
Printed in Germany, 1955 for "Mitteleuropaische Insekten" by Claus Caspari.

Concerning the age of the paper - cca. 60 years - some spots can be occured on the margin and the reverse side, but these do not effect the quality of the lithograph itself as it can be seen on the scan.

Please note, that by antique prints due to their age some imperfections are to be expected.
