Cyrtothyrea marginalis

The Common Dotted Fruit Chafer is a big name for a small spotted bug!

These insects are almost 1 cm in length and are black with white spots.

The Common Dotted Fruit Chafer may be found on fruit as well as various flowers such as Arum Lilies. It may actually cause damage to some ornamental garden flowers.

In South Africa the Common Dotted Fruit Chafer can be found from the Western Cape through the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal, to Mpumalanga and Limpopo.
