This is Polyphylla fullo, a beetle in the family Scarabaeidae. It appears to be common and widespread - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyphylla_fullo

Thanks for identifying this beauty ^^ tho; Polyphylla fullo is found in North Africa and Europe. It occurs most frequently in central and southern Europe, but it is almost everywhere rare. so it does seem to be rare, then i guess it was a great find :D

I should have been more precise in calling it common, as it obviously is not evenly distributed over its entire range...
