Buprestis splendens

Entomology, or the study of insects, has been my first passion since childhood and the activity to which I have devoted more time.

This is a small sample pictures of Coleoptera (beetles), the order of insects attracted me among so much variety and I studied from the beginning.

The species represented belonging to fairly well known families with very different forms and customs.

All are European beetles, being present in the Iberian fauna. Most of them are in two websites:

The Rainbow Leaf/Snowdon Beetle is very beautiful, maybe worth including

The specimen you propose is similar to Chrysolina fastuosa, share the same family, genre and both are precious metallic colors, this is the reason for not having included (and so many others species), not excessively lengthen the list. But this still your request and this insect a real wonderful animal, I add it without hesitation... :)

In this list I have only tried to gather some striking species of beetles, for general knowledge and also to warn those who don't like bugs (they just see them as nasty and dirty creatures) their shapes and colorings -not to mention their customs- can also be entirely fascinating.
