Can you help me in identifying these beetles? Sure are eye-catching.
Thank you very much.
These distinctive beetles are called Blue Milkweed Beetles, Chrysochus cobaltinus, and we are quite pleased that you captured one pair in the act of mating.
Thank you for your quick ID and for maintaining such a interesting site!
