Trichiini (but see text)
The Trichiinae are a subfamily of the scarab beetle family (Scarabaeidae), but occasionally they are included in the Cetoniidae as tribe Trichiini. The conspicuous bee beetles (Trichius) are probably the best-known genus in Europe.
The adults feed on sugar-rich secretions of stems, leaves, fruits and flowers of different plants. Most larvae develop in rotten wood.
