Goliath et al.

Goliath Beetle and others, plate 45 from Le règne animal (The Animal Kingdom) by Georges Cuvier. Again, I don't see this one in the BHL photostream here on Flickr, so this is my own edited, cropped version based on the BHL scan. Species:

1=Trichius fasciatus Lin.

2=Platygenia barbata Schoen

3=Cetonia aurata Lin

4=Goliathus giganteus Lamarck; though listed as such, pattern is that of Goliathus regius

5=Gymnetis nitida Fab. = Cotinis nitida (Linnaeus, 1758)
