Tamamushi
I just found out about your site, and thought for sure I could stump you. I browsed through pages 1, 2, 3… 11 of beetles, and just when I thought I was home free, there it was on page 12. Wish I had found your site a few months sooner. Well, here’s another picture of a Tamamushi, found in Aichi prefecture, Japan. It was laying on the side of the road, deceased I believe. You can make out an ant sitting on top of it. Keep up the good work,
Steven

Hi Steven,
It is actually quite easy to stump us, but thankfully we have several certified experts to assist us when we are in a bind. Your Japanese Buprestid, or Metallic Wood Boring Beetle, is quite beautiful. Despite being dead, the Tamamushi is still a stunning specimen.
