Small, about 2 cm long, very bright colors.
Semi tropical forest in the mexican Pacific coast.
I think it is called Harlequin just for the colors because it didn't move fast.Thank you Patty
Beautiful bug; I wonder if it moves and turns fast as to be called harlequin or just a color thing...Greetings and very nice spotting and picture Luis. =)
Thank you Nuwan Chathuranga
You are right Sergio. They are really hard to spot.
What I like most in these bugs/beetles is that they look very conspicuous in their shining colors, when you see them in a photo like this one, but they are so hard to see when they are in the bushes.
Thank you Maria Pomsaharova for the ID and the link.
Thank you SatyenMehta
