Flower Beetle in Resin
Beetles are one of the earth's most successful animals, and chafer beetles such as this can be found all over the world, in a wide spectrum of colors. This is a lovely little green beetle from Asia known as Anomala expansa. A member of the scarab beetle family, its shell has a prismatic quality, refracting ambient light to give its bright green color a sort of metallic sheen. It is related to some of the most admired beetles in the world: the Jewel Scarabs such as the amazing golden Chrysina resplendens.
This small specimen has been set in a block of transparent lucite resin, making it a great decorative piece or educational display.
