This amazing lithograph was made in the 19th Century. The zoological Print shows more than 20 different species of Beetles. Included are beetles like cucujo (fire beetle), rhinoceros beetle, Melolontha, Byrrhidae (pill beetle), Hydrophilidae, Flower chafer and many more. The polychrome Lithograph is very detailed and has the German and Latin name of each beetle. It would look even more beautiful when framed in a simple frame. For better preservation it comes in an acid free plastic sleeve with a thick ph-neutral backing board.
