DESCRIPTION  AKA King Christmas beetle as they are often found noisily flying around lights around December. Beautiful metallic green/gold winged scarab beetle which is around 28-30mm. The Anoplognathus genus has some 35 species all commonly known as Christmas beetles and come in a variety of colours from plain brown to a beautiful gold colour. They have a two year life cycle living and developing in the soil for a year and emerging towards the end of Winter when they feed on the nearest food plant - their preferred food is the tender leaves at the top of Eucalytpus trees. Mating is their number one priority and eggs are usually laid close to their food source.

Many Christmas beetles come in a variety of colours from light golden brown to the metallic green colours ( more prevalent in the far north Queensland )

Established in Huntington Beach, CA. early in 2001, Sullen got it’s start from being heavily influenced by Southern California beach culture and tattoo inspired art. With a strong focus on ideals and practices of modern tattooers, Sullen evolved from a small group of art driven tattooers and artists into a world renowned “Art Collective”. As a whole, the “Collective” is drawn to the idea that art of all forms should be promoted, while related ideas should be shared for the world to learn from.
