GLITTER LEAF CHAFER BEETLE - CHRYSOPHORA CHRYSOCHLORA
Chrysophora chrysochlora is a species of beetle in the Scarabaeidae family found in Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. Members of this species can reach between 1 and 1.6 inches in length. They are a glossy metallic green speckled with gold; this coloration coupled with their granulate texture is reminiscent of glitter, hence the species’ common name. Males are larger than females, and wield strong elongate spurs on the hind legs and enlarged tarsal claws.
Our all-natural, intact specimens (no fake parts here!) are all of first-rate quality, delicately prepared, mounted, and framed with double-glass glazing in our very own fabrication studio in Upstate New York. We model our frames from solid fine ashwood, and they’re available in both a matte-black, and a natural finish.
Our framed insects are made-to-order. Please allow up to two weeks for your order to be completed. If you need your order sooner than this, please contact us at 212-343-1114 x401 or [email protected] and we will do our best to accommodate you!
