Caption: Colorado beetle. Macrophotograph of a colorado beetle (Leptinotarsa decemlineata) feeding on a potato (Solanum tuberosum) plant. This beetle is found throughout the USA and Europe. It is an important pest of solanaceous plants, especially the potato. The adult beetle feeds on the leaves of its host (as seen here), partially or totally destroying the foliage. Major infestations of this beetle can significantly reduce the size of the crop harvest. Magnification: x1 at 35mm size.
