Hi again Bug fans!
I got friendly with this Steraspis squamosa on my hike to Jordan las weekend. It seems unsure of itself, doesn’t it?

Jewel Beetle

Hi again Ben,
Metallic Borer Beetles in the family Cerambycidae are commonly called Jewel Beetles, and when we tried to find a link for
Steraspis squamosa, we were amused to find our own identification on the Travelvice Travelogue website.

    Hi Daniel,

    I’m pretty sure that this is a Buprestid, rather than a Cerambycid.
