Golden Buprestis

Buprestis aurulenta


Beautiful jeweled beetle, very metallic green, gold, and rusty reds. Approximately 24mm long x 12mm wide.


Found on river bottom farm land with a few old growth trees.


I found this beautiful beetle on my lawn chair, warming itself in the morning sun. It is incredibly difficult to catch the vibrant colour of this beetle on digital media!
