Good morning Bugman. I found this beautiful green beetle in a forest in my town. I would like to share this beauty of nature with you on site. Do you know what this species?
Thanks from Brazil.

This is a Leaf Beetle in the family Chrysomelidae, but we have not had any luck identifying the species. Perhaps Cesar Crash of Insetologia will recognize it. Fortuitously, when we went to the site to create a link, we found a recent posting on Insetologia identifying this Leaf Beetle as Iphimeis dives, submitted by you, and we verified that on the Science Photo Library site.
