Friday Beetle Blogging: The Glorious Beetle

Chrysina (=Plusiotis) gloriosa – The Glorious Beetle
Huachuca Mountains, Arizona

Few of Arizona’s beetles are as spectacular as the jewel scarabs in the genus Chrysina. They are most readily collected by blacklight (as in Kojun’s handful o’ beetles) in juniper forests in the weeks following the arrival of the monsoon.
