Hi,
Was out walking and thought these bugs were beautiful and have no idea what they are or what they are doing. Are they attacking a tree or feasting on a fungus? Would love help getting them identified. I’ve only seen them once in the forest.
Thanks you!

Dear Nature Lover,
These are Pleasing Fungus Beetles in the genus
Megalodacne.  They are feeding on fungus as their name implies.
