Photograph by David Hawks

Chrysina cavei was named by entomologist David Hawks of the University of California at Riverside after collaborator and friend Ronald Cave. “Ron always seems to be cold and bundled up when we’re working in the cloud forests,” says Hawks. “This species’ blue tarsi remind me of Ron’s perpetual cold feet!”
