The metallic green "rose chafer" (or goldsmith beetle, Cetonia aurata) reaches 20 mm long and has a distinct V-shaped scutellum (the small area between wing cases). Reflection of circularly polarised light makes the beetle appear metallic green in color. Plitvice Lakes National Park (Nacionalni park Plitvicka jezera, in Croatia, Europe) was founded in 1949 and is honored by UNESCO as World Heritage Site.
