Thanks Asergio and Carol, as far as I know this particular one is not so common, I was lucky to see this one as a researcher found it at the moment I was visiting a wonderful place in a cloud forest

If all my beetles looked like yours and Sergio's, I would love beetles a lot more. HA! Wonderful colors!

Wow, I didn't see it before. It is so much more beautiful than my brown beetle. Very nice spotting, Jonathan, congratulations.

Sorry all of you for not answering to your kind comments. thanks for your appreciation.
