Love your site!!!!!
I met this beetle in the western highland of Guatemala. Can you tell me anything about him/her?

Hi Deborah,
This is a Metallic Wood Boring Beetle in the family Buprestidae, but we don’t currently have the time to research the exact species. Perhaps one of our enthusiastic readers can give us something more exact.

Update: February 16, 2011
Thanks to a comment from wildabug, we are able to link to an image of a different species,
Psiloptera torquata, on The Insect Collector website.

Location: Guatemala
