Jewel Beetle

Dear Zohaib,
This is a Metallic Borer Beetle or Jewel Beetle in the family Buprestidae.  The larvae bore in the wood of trees and shrubs, and most species of Jewel Beetle have specific host plants rather than feeding indiscriminately.  We will attempt to identify your beetle to the species or at least genus level.
