Frog-Legged Leaf Beetle

Sagra Buqueti

Description:

Sagra buqueti can reach a length of 25–50 mm (0.98–1.97 in). These iridescent, colorful beetles have a striking sexual dimorphism. The males are much larger and have very long and strong hind legs (hence the common name). The basic color is metallic green, with reddish and golden reflections on the elytra. Cocoons of this species can be found in the jungle on climbing vines, specifically kudzu[citation needed]. They have also been captive reared at the Berlin Zoo on sweet potato

Habitat:

Forest, Garden, Bush, Field

I invite you to go to http://www.projectnoah.org/faq where you will find the purpose and “rules” of Project Noah.
There is a blog http://blog.projectnoah.org/ where we post articles from spotters with special insight into different organisms.
There are also the chats for help with identification, and to comment on your own and others’ spottings.
Look at the global and local missions to put your spottings into:http://www.projectnoah.org/missions
