Abstract
Beetles of the scarab family have been found to reflect circularly polarized light from incident unpolarized light. There are many known animals that use polarized light in some form and several that actually create it, but there are few examples of the creation of circularly polarized light in nature. Previous work is summarized, and new measurements of several scarab specimens are presented.
