CC288 Jewel Beetles Insect Museum

Visit to the Insectropolis Bugseum in Toms River NJ. Somewhat pricey given the small size, but they have some nice preseved displays and a few live exhibits.

 

From Wikipedia:

 

"Buprestidae is a family of beetles, known as jewel beetles or metallic wood-boring beetles because of their glossy iridescent colors. The family is among the largest of the beetles, with some 15,000 species known in 450 genera. The larger and more spectacularly colored jewel beetles are highly prized by insect collectors."
