Lomaptera are beetles from the subfamily Cetoniinae, tribe Schizorhinini. The genus was created by Gory & Percheron, in 1833. The type species of the genus is Cetonia papua Guérin-Méneville, 1830. These cetoniids have the tip of the scutellum invisible, which makes the difference with the genus Ischiopsopha.
The genus is spread throughout the whole Australian region.
The details of the paramers have been published in the volume 25 of The Beetles of the World, together with many distribution maps.
