A stunning and rare Jewel Scarab Beetle in a handmade wooden frame mounted on high-quality acid-free conservation board. The Latin and common names are printed underneath the specimen.

First documented in 1840, the Plusiotis victorina is one of the most unique looking beetles in the world. It's lime green iridescent shell shimmers with red / orange spots. It is a truly remarkable specimen. These beetles are found in most areas of Central America and survive on certain fungus and bacteria found in these parts of the world.
